MONTES Discography Pájaro nocturno/Un viaje al mar (single) (1973) Cuando brille el tiempo (1974) Members featured in the album Cuando brille el tiempo (1974) JORGE MONTES - Electric guitar JUAN CARLOS POLICASTRO - Vocals ALBERTO ONETO - Bass CARLOS SALAZAR - Drums Guests musicians: SERGIO GOFFAR - Electric piano EDURADO PIPMAN - Drums ALEJANDRO ZUCKER - Bass After playing with the beat group Séptima Brigada, guitarist Jorge Montes formed Montes (originally called Montes Mahatma). He released an extremely rare and excellent single, with a superb b-side (''Un viaje al mar''). Jorge and Luis Miguel Montes (author of the cover) wrote all the songs of Cuando brille el tiempo, the debut album, a sort of tribute to Jimi Hendrix. With guesses Sergio Goffar on electric piano, Eduardo Pipman on drums and Alejandro Zucker on bass, this record goes from psycho to progressive hard rock with a tremendous killer guitar! ''En el camino de Dios hacia el sol'' opens this remarkable LP, followed by the crazy wah-wah hard rock ''Arde Roma'', ''El ascensor'' and the melodic ''Hoy (cuando brille el tiempo)'' with a guitar full of effects and skills. Side b opens with ''Arco Iris'' that switches from the calm to the fury in minutes, followed by "Fuera del sol" (on a Pappo's Blues style). ''Epílogo de Crossville'' and ''Días después'' closes the album with lots of effects that remind the glorious Electric Ladyland. In short: a highly recommended guitar album, with excellent vocal work and solid rhythm section. Despite good critics, the record went unnoticed and sold poorly. The group toured South America (something unusual at that time) and split. Jorge Montes played briefly with Pappo and later disappeared. It is said that he got killed in Ecuador on a drug-related event in the 80s. Information:
