Product Description

* BGP Funk & Jazz Classics returns with another overlooked album from the world of jazz and funk. It comes with its original artwork and brand new sleeve notes.

* Luis Gasca's "Collage" is most notedfor its fast fusion version of Stevie Wonder's `Visions', although the entire LP is a great listen with top musicians Patrice Rushen, Harvey Mason, Bobby Hutcherson and Hadley Caliman joining Gasca, playing a lush filmic latin fusion all arranged by Don Costa.

* Gasca was prominent in the late 60s as the go-to trumpeter for a host of San Francisco rock giants that included Janis Joplin, Carlos Santana, Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane's Marty Balin. He also played the horn parts on Van Morrison's "Tupelo Honey" album and was a founder member of latin-rock group Malo.

High Energy Latin Jazz -- Don't Miss This One 11 April 2013
By Douglas R. Miner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the first time this 1976 release has entered the market as a digital product, and BGP (Ace Records/EU) has done an admirable job presenting it.
The packaging reproduces the cover art and adds an insightful essay that places the album in its context within the San Francisco music scene of the 1970s. My only gripe with the graphics is that I need a magnifying glass to read the musician credits that appear on the panel that originally was the back cover of the LP jacket. A necessary but painful concession to the CD format.
But what a lineup! Fellow latin funk-soulsters Joachim Young, Victor Pantoja & Richard Kermode alongside jazz stalwarts Harvey Mason, Bobby Hutcherson, Frank Rosolino & Patrice Rushen. The chance to hear Don Menza doing charts outside of his standard big band bag is, on its own, worth the price of the disc. Bonus - a "Pat O'Hearn" appears as well!
I remember thinking back in the day that the LP sounded a bit too dry for my ears. Well, my more "mature" ear no longer considers this a fault, and the remastering does a nice job of preserving the LP sound. Dry, yes, but immediate, nicely detailed and well-balanced.
Gasca's playing is fluent and lucid throughout. No vocals to get in the way of the music.
I can't compare this album to others in his career, but this one has always been a favorite of mine. It should appeal to fans of Azteca, Malo, Santana, and the city of San Francisco in the 1970s. Get it before its gone!
