referencing Huascaran, LP, Album, Club, 9116 0604, 91 16 0604

The word 'fermata' refers to an element of musical notation indicating that a note should be sustained for longer than its note value would indicate. These guys must have taken a few music lessons!
This is a fantastic concept album written by and produced by this great Slovakian jazzrock/progressive rock band in memory of the 66,000+ of victims (including Czechoslovakian rock-climbing expedition) of the earthquake in the area of Mt.Huascaran, Peru in 1970.
The band on this LP consists of 6 members, and all are very accomplished musicians. The album is top notch jazz/rock fusion, with some cool progressive prog/space rock leanings. Very well recorded and mixed too. I suggest trying to find the original LP on the 'Opus' label. 9116 0604.

I've added one of my YouTube videos that feature two of my favourite cuts from this LP. Please see this LP's release page for video. Thanks.
