Germany, 1974, progressive rock / jazz fusion
Tortilla Flat – Für ein ¾ Stündchen: This is one of about fifty albums in my collection that are solitary albums by bands. In other words, this is Tortilla Flat’s only studio album, so, of course, I was interested in this recording initially for the obscurity factor. When I listened to it, however, I found it to be pleasant on its own, without meta considerations, especially since its main instrument is the flute, giving it quite a pastoral feeling overall, the guitar-driven second track excepted. What this here is is standard 70s prog / jazz fusion. It’s not going to blow you away, but it’s a pretty good offering of the time.
