STONE ALLIANCE - CON AMIGOS



















Stone Alliance for PM Records from 1977.
Three in a row for Gene Perla and Don Alias here at Orgy In Rhythm.

Steve Grossman Tenor Saxophone/Gene Perla Bass, Keyboards and Guitar/Don Alias Drums, Congas, Guitar and Percussion/Santiago Giacobbe Piano/José Maria Loriente Congas, Bongos and Percussion
Daniel Binelli Bandoneon/Roberto Valencia Percussion
Recorded at Studio Netto,Buenos Aries by Jorge Da Silva/Produced by Nano Herrera and Gene Perla.

The result of a State Department funded trip down thru South America this album has an even stronger latin influenced sound and features guest artists from Argentina.There's a great percussion workout on "Amigos" with Don Alias doing what he did best,the lovely sound of the Bandoneon is introduced on "I'll Tell You Tomorrow" and,of course,the raw latin funk of Steve Grossman's "Graciela".
Stone Alliance never put a foot wrong for me,eschewing the commercial jazz funk of the day and producing a hard fusion of latin,funk and jazz which was always....All Killer,No Filler !!!
This made a pricey Japanese reissue on cd now out of print.
This post is ripped @ 320 from the original vinyl.

Yeah, this one passed me by. Are you kiddin' me??? Man, this contains one of the sickest sax solos imaginable. Steve Grossman is definitely in the house on Graciela. I bectcha some of the our Brasilian friends would dig this.

I'm just starting to really dig through your site Bacoso. You have a really good ear for the electric grooves. Props to you. I'm a fan. Thanks.

I downloaded this years ago, and am enjoying it as I type this. This site has been invaluable as I attempted to rebuild my music library after Hurricane Katrina. Thanks for sharing music.
