Jose Pedro Beledo in Escape 1985
This is a wonderful, absolutely delightful unknown mixture of Spinetta Jade-type lush latin pop-fusion with inventive, rich chord changes in a tropically sweet exciting package, and the progressive American style of intellectual electric guitar that we've heard before from the likes of Rick Bishop or Scott Goudeau from these pages. There is a nice bio online which briefly mentions this album, as well as a second called El Cefiro, which, obviously, needs to be now found, but little on discogs.
The first track demonstrates the awesome professionalism and inventive songwriting:
Fantastic and unknown find. Thank you again...
