Carlos Beltrán (full name Carlos Beltrán Martínez De Castro), a Mexican keyboard player, was born in 1956. Having received Classical training in childhood, he became interested in Symphonic Prog and soft rock. However, 1987 saw him release his only official album to date, Progressive Electronic gem, entitled ''Jericó'' (on MUSART Records), where he combined his proficient Classical piano playing with Cosmic synths and sequences. Sadly, this wonderful album went largely unnoticed in his native country and the world hasn?t seen any official follow up to Jericó. However, before retiring he distributed his home-made unofficial tape Familia Carbajal, which is even harder to find than his official album. In 1997, Jerico has been re-released on CD, thereby saving it from undeserved oblivion.
Victim of its time and epoch, Jericó can still stand as a bright light of 80's Prog Electronic music. It will especially appeal to those who like Classical and symphonic touches to Cosmic music, like, let's say, Vangelis or Sangiuliano. Many fans would wish Tangerine Dream had sounded like this in eighties.ProgarchivesCarlos Beltrán - Jericó (1987)
