Gerardo Bátiz, who is symbol of Mexican jazz, released this amazing jazz piece in 1980 under the name of the group Cristal. Bátiz did most of the composition, and La Nopalera connections such as Arturo Cipriano and Cecilia Engelhart also participated in this work, which can be said to be the first solo work. The album features jazz/fusion sound with an elegant and gentle electric piano at its core, among the our highlights are B3 "Chancero," which features the unique voice of Arturo Cipriano, and Afro-Cuban Jazz A4 "Guaribe Bis" with its pleasant steelpan sound. Of course, there are beautiful instrumentals and other tune. It's always great to hear.

メキシカン・ジャズのシンボルGerardo Bátizが80年にグループCristal名義でリリースした名作。 Bátizがほとんどのコンポーズを手掛け、Arturo CiprianoやCecilia EngelhartなどのLa Nopalera人脈も参加した実質ソロ初作と言える作品。エレガントで穏やかなエレピを軸としたジャズ/フュージョンを収録していますが、異彩を放つArturo Ciprianoの独特の歌声が光るB3”Chancero”やスティールパンの音色も気持ちよく響くアフロ・キューバンジャズA4"Guaribe Bis"などが出色。勿論美しいインスト曲なども入っています。いつ聞いても素晴らしいです。
