    festival is a total carnival of sound

    l came across this album when it was released in 1976, and it took my breath away. l believe, Carlos was at his best on this stunning album, backed up with the brilliant other musicans and Fred Catero and David Rubinson on production. l have now re-discovered this sound, and it stil stand up today, forthe true masterpiece it always was.
