Comments:  While many would consider this a "sell out" record, one track in particular haunts my memories from my teenage years when I was first discovering jazz and fusion: Para Ti, Para Mi. Les says in the liner notes that he loved Brazilian Music and that this song was his offering in that style. It features the Rhodes alternating with guitar on a very drawn out melody and very Brasil style leads, with a backing of mellow latin percussion groove and beautiful string orchestra.

I'll come back to write more later on.
