Beledo - Dreamland Mechanism Album Reviews
Expert fusion from the Uruguayan multi-instrumentalist Beledo.
Graced with impressive technique, Montevideo-born/New York-based guitarist Beledo was recently recruited by NY prog outfit Circuline, and fusion fans will recall his incisive work on The Avengers’ funk-soaked outing On A Mission.
On his debut for the ever-adventurous label MoonJune, he displays his wild, multi-instrumentalist talents, the prevailing feel referencing the European end of the 70s jazz-rock spectrum rather than its often-punchier US side. Mechanism, with its gnarly, interlocking riffing, apes an outtake from Bundles-era Soft Machine, Beledo providing a nimble violin solo and supple keyboards as well as scorching guitar.
