In 1984, after being invited to play at some festivals in Argentinia, Austrian saxophonist Karlheinz Miklin got to know some local jazz cracks. The "Trio Argentina" was founded and subsequently expanded to become the "Quinteto Argentina". This is the first recording of the quintet. The music on this album is percussion driven but not pure Latin Jazz, more a blend of European post bop and Jazz from Argentinia. Miklin is a virtuous player being influenced by Coltrane, Sanders and Barbieri. Like the latter he can make solos dramatic and exclamative. The album's highlight is "Para Mi Grandote" featuring a stunning guitar solo by Ricardo Lew playing phrases in a staccato like manner. Compare this tune to Gato Barbieri's version of "Yesterdays" on the homonymous album. El Junior, the last tune on the LP, is the most streamlined piece coming closer to what one might call Latin Jazz. The rhythm section is excellent; Jorge Navarro's comping on the piano gives just this latin kick to the tunes (all originals, by the way).
