Massive work from keyboardist Wolfgang Dauner
– a player who's come a long way here since his piano trio records of the 60s! There's plenty of heavy fusion in the mix – Dauner
on a variety of electric keys, and some very cool ring modulator, which makes for some really wild sounds – and other players include Sigi Schwab on guitars and sitar, and Eberhard Weber on bass – both heady bandmates who really share a lot of the same sensibilities as Wolfgang
. There's a bit of spoken vocals on the record, but the main focus is highly instrumental, and very trippy – jamming, and a mix of jazz and prog modes – with all players handling a variety of different instruments throughout the session. Even wilder than Dauner
's classic Oimels record for MPS – with tracks that include "Raga", "Mellodrama No 2A", "Lady Blue", and "Thursday Morning Sunrise". Bonus cuts include "Kabul", "Tau Ceti", and "Behind The Stage".
