Funky and free-thinking fusion from the Texas scene of the mid 70s a great indie album by a group who travelled in the same territory as the soul combo Starcrost! Although American, the work here has some great qualities that remind us of some of the best European fusion from the same time a sense of soaring, stretching energy and one that never resorts to too much jamming to carry across its message, and which juxtaposes heavier rhythms with some gentler tunes that really allow the horn parts some wonderful moments! Instrumentation include soprano sax, tenor, trumpet, electric and acoustic piano, and a fair bit of percussion too all recorded with a great sense of warmth, almost in the mode of some of the best Fantasy Records 70s sessions! Titles include “Jig”, “Halyards”, “Cumulo Nimbus”, “47 Tears”, “March Of The Goober Woobers”, and “Weedhopper”
