Editorial Reviews

Digitally Remastered Edition of the Debut Album from the Latin Jazz Funk Group from 1976. The Album was Produced by the Crusaders' Wayne Henderson and was Clearly Influenced by Return to Forever and Weather Report, but They also Incorporated the Funk of Earth Wind and Fire in the Mix. Add a Bit of Latin Spice and You've Got a True Melange of Latin Jazz Fusion that Uniquely Worked Well.

Yes!

Good to see this album has made it to cd.

I used to listen to it in the 70's when it came out along with their other two releases "sky islands"(my favorite!) and another one which title I have forgotten.I enjoy the high level of virtuosity of these players,something you don't get to hear so often anymore.They are right up there with all the big names.

This one here is the more funky and jazzrocky one compared to "sky islands" which is definetly more brazilian influenced and somewhat deeper.

But they are all extremly good and unique and I just hope that the other ones will also become available on cd soon.

Also check out "Opa",another south american outfit from around that time centered around the singer Ruben Rada and the keyboard player Hugo Fatturoso."Magic Time"is the one you are looking for with guests Airto and Flora Purim.Very Good!

I agree with the first reviewer. This is quality music. I listened to this group all the time growing up and I need Sky Islands on CD. I have it in mint condition on an Album, but the quality is not the same. This group made alot of wonderful music and it should be appreciated.

Caldera, a so-called latin group, had deeply embedded brazilian and african musical roots that created beautiful melodies. Their introductory album was a very good start, but lacks the nuances of "Sky Island."

For diehard fans, get "Caldera" but, for the rest of us, please, please have someone, anyone, transfer "Sky Island" to compact disc. My turntable needle is now, basically, scratching my favorite Caldera album.
