El Trio is certainly the first band from the Dominican Republic I have ever reviewed (and perhaps even listened to).

On Las Manos they offer the listener a varied palette of mostly "Guitar - Bass - Drums - Vocals" songs featuring a good number of interesting musical segments. Some songs I consider to be pretty much straight Hard Rock. For those, references to a band like Living Colour can be heard. Other songs are more Southern Rock in genre. Free Jazz and hints of Carabbean music are also present, to some extent, in a number of pieces.

Las Manos is good and eclectic collection of songs. They all feature crunchy guitars, crisp drumming, energetic bass playing and virile singing (in Spanish). This CD I would certainly enjoy while driving around in a convertible car on a sunny day, or sipping a beer on the patio.

No nonsense original and always interesting music, very professionnally done by talented musicians. Good stuff!!
