These guys are probably the most famous and important fusion band Venezuela ever produced, They never managed to play live, and this record is the only testimony to their talent. Their guitar player Alex Rodriguez  released a solo album two years later that is also an absolute jewel. After which he concentrated on classical guitar playing and composing developing into one of the countries most important clasical composers, guitar players and teachers.
