Soaring grooves and scatting vocals – a wonderful collaboration between this hip fusion combo and singer Rachel Gould
, and one that's right up there with
the best German grooves of the Glucklich generation! Rachel
only sings on a few of the album's tracks, but those sparkle beautifully with
a breezy sort of soul that's totally great – and other instrumental titles have a different sort of appeal, but one that's wonderful too – well-played keyboards and guitar, with
out some of the fusion excesses of the 70s – served up in lean grooves that bring in a great mix of Brazilian and funky jazz styles. The set's got a warmly appealing sound throughout – but not one that's at all like US fusion of the time – still quite adventurous, and really set free to groove in a joyous sort of way! Titles include "Mystic Latin", "Movin Seconds", "Vom Regen Bogen", "Short Funky", "Congress Of Dreams", "Cyklus III", and "Anticipated Joy".
