Caldera

One of the most innovative and chance-taking jazz fusion outfits of the late '70s, Caldera combined jazz, funk, and rock with a wide variety of Latin music. Caldera were influenced by 1970s fusion explorers like Return to Forever and Weather Report, but the bandmembers were also influenced by everything from Earth, Wind & Fire's soul-funk to Afro-Cuban salsa, Brazilian samba, and Andean/Peruvian music. Led by keyboardist Eduardo del Barrio and guitarist Jorge Strunz, Caldera featured members from all over Latin America as well as parts of the U.S. While bassist Dean Cortez and saxophonist Steve Tavaglione were U.S.-born, other members were born in Costa Rica (Strunz), Argentina (del Barrio), Cuba (drummer Carlos Vega), and Brazil (percussionist Mike "Baiano" Azevedo). In 1976, Caldera signed with Capitol and recorded their self-titled debut album, which was followed by Sky Islands in 1977, Time and Chance in 1978, and Dreamer in 1979. In an ideal world, Caldera would have had a long life, but their four Capitol LPs (only the first of which has been reissued on CD after the turn of the millennium) didn't sell -- and the band called it quits in 1979. However, most of Caldera's members kept busy long after the band's breakup. Strunz, for example, went on to form the guitar duo Strunz & Farah with Iranian/Persian guitarist Ardeshir Farah, while the 1980s and 1990s found del Barrio working with everyone from Earth, Wind & Fire to Stan Getz and Dianne Reeves. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi

Pandora has been a life saver for me. Not only can I find songs that I havent heard in a long time....I am finding ones that I have never heard before. I LOVE PANDORA!
Been a big Caldera fan for many years . Unfortunatel y , their stuff was never released on CD. The three other albums , Time and Chance 1978, Sky Islands - 1977 and Dreamer - 1979 are way better than theis release. Some absolute smokin playing going on !!! I did manage to get mp3's of these later Caldera so I have them loaded up in my I tunes available to play at the click of a mouse ! Great band!! Wonderful Mini Moog lead work!
Can't wait till Pandora makes the entire "Sky Islands" album available so we can all enjoy the genius that is Caldera. Ponle gas Pandora.
Thanks Pandora! Never heard of these guys before but loving what I listened to so far.

After several listens here on Pandora, I'll add Caldera to my list of recordings that should be reissued on CD. Maybe the people at Capitol Records should take notice.
This group left an indelible influence in the maturity of my music experience.
I wish they had issued any of their four albums on CD. Great improvisatio n .
