Retreta Mayor, La
La Retreta Mayor
Awesome Latin jazz-funk self-titled LP from Venezuelan band La Retreta Mayor -founded and led by guitarist Alex Rodrguez- originally released in 1976 on Discomoda. The short-lived 10-piece band and numerous guest musicians created a jazz-funk & fusion gem considered a reference in Venezuelan music history. The group unfortunately disbanded right after the recording and did not play live or record any more music together. The album contains quite a few heaters for the dance floor like Zambo and Lquido Elemento, blazing with the rich brass section and percussion. First time reissue. 180g vinyl.
