Azahar - Elixir Elixir
Prog Used - LP 17.1235/6 Movie Play
Deadly Rare 1977 Laminated Gatefold Original. "What A Peculiar Band Were Azahar! They Created A Rough Sound, An Energetic Combination Of Ethereal Keyboard Orchestrations And Guitar Riffs, The Bassist Made His Instrument Assume A Prominent Position, The Guitar Solos Were Quite Rocky, And The Occasional Synth Solos And Harmonies Served As An Appropriate Match, And Last But Not Least, Zappala’s Passionate Singing Added Some More Fire To The Band’s Musical Flame During His Interventions… And Yet, They Had No Drummer. Their First Album, "Elixir", Is A Concept Album About Sorcery And Magic Dominated By A Distinctive Flamenco Guitar Style Over Layers Of Keyboards (Synth, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes Piano And Grand Piano). It Features No Drums, Only Bass Rhythm, But Still Manages To Be Playful And Varied, With A Few Interesting Twists And Turns And Some Intensive Electric Guitar Passages. Given The Fact That The Band’s Material Is Heavily Influenced By Flamenco And Arabic Folklores, Which Are Indeed Very Rhythmic Musical Sources, It Is Odd That Azahar Could Feel At Ease Without A Drummer/Percussionist. But They Certainly Did, And Made It Work Alright. The Lack Of A Drummer Allows All Four Musicians To Expand Their Performances Without The Constraints Of Well-Marked Rhythm Patterns: The Tempo Itself Is Created And/Or Kept And/Or Modified By The Interaction Between Them." - Progarchives.com... more details
