Buki-Yamaz - s/t. 1975 Denmark

Generally I don't go for Danish fusion bands with Spanish album titles, but with Buki-Yamaz, the band has the perfect blend of instrumental dexterity and melodic consciousness. Lots of flute, guitar, and Latin rhythms. Some of it is pretty mellow, and there's a certain cruise ship lounge vibe throughout, that I find somehow appealing in a warped Love Boat sort of way (similar to the Opa from Uruguay we recently reviewed). Hookfarm is the same label responsible for Fred Israel and Drops.

There is a compilation CD (on Music Mecca) that includes a few tracks from all of their albums. But the albums proper have not been reissued in full.
