Tricantropus — Recuerdos del Futura
(Mylodon Mylo CD056, 2007, CD)
by Henry Schneider, Published 2007-12-31Tricantropus is a trio from Madrid, Spain (Pedro Parraga on bass, fretless bass and keyboards, Manolo Manrique on piano, Hammond organ, and synths, and Javier Lopez on guitars and keyboards) who play sophisticated and beautiful symphonic progressive instrumental music with a little jazz fusion and King Crimson thrown in for seasoning. Augmenting the trio on various tracks are guest musicians playing flute, keyboards, viola da gamba, guitars, and drums. The resulting music recalls, on occasion, 70s Italian progressive rock. Listening to music without the full frontal assault of frantic testosterone laden bass so prevalent in today’s neo-prog music is sheer pleasure. Recuerdos del Futuro (translated to Memories of the Future) is never boring. Tricantropus’ dazzling artistry, composition, and orchestration are more than enough reasons to seek out this disc.
