Great South American Jazzrock
Rowen di Bowen | MA ,United States | 02/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

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!"
Not as good as "Sky Islands" but worth buying.

"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."
Jazz with a serious funk soul groove

"..or is it funk with jazz sensibilities? whatever it is, caldera impress me anew each time i put on the cd. complex, progressiive, borderline epic - this is what 70s rock/funk/soul/jazz fusion was all about! some serious guitar work in here as well. fans of dimeola or mclaughlin wouldn't be disappointed. but underlying the changing progressive grooves and jazz flavors is that fat funky bass beat emerging and re-emerging out of caldera's ever changing rhythms. at times, in their spacier moments, you'd almost think lonnie liston smith was in there. great stuff."
