One of the grooviest takes on the music of Galt MacDermot you'll ever hope to hear – as Australian percussionist John Sangster turns in some wonderful rhythm-heavy versions of the tunes from Hair – and also adds in a few sweet numbers of his own! Sangster also wrote a few new tracks, and the whole thing works as a nice suite that moves between percussive stuff and funky moments. The main mode is jazz, but there's lots of other wild touches in the mix too – as Sangster plays vibes, theremin, congs, claves, guiro, kalimba, tubular bell
s, marimba, Indian bell
s, and lots more instruments – alongside organ from the great Col Nolan, plus Bob McIvor on trombone, Lennie Hutchinson on bass, and Derek Fairbrass on drums. Ben Turpin adds in a bit of "moon voice" – which is as cool as it sounds – and titles include "Frank Mills", "Turn On", "Walking In Space", "Drop Out", "Three Five Zero Zero", "Good Morning Sunshine", "Let The Sunshine In", "What A Piece Of Work Is Man", "Hashish", "Aquarius", and "Hare Krishna".
