That's "Danser", not "dancer" – as in John
Danser, who's also best known for a groovy jazz album under his own name! This sweet little set from the early 70s may well be John
's best album ever – a wonderful blend of funky grooves and these wonderful raspy vocals – completely charming, and with a quality that's hard to describe, but really really great! There's a wickedly offbeat feel to the record that keeps us coming back – at some level the funky big band grooves of the MPS 70s generation, but mixed with a more sensitive independent American vibe too – especially given that some of the lyrics remind us a bit of Matthew Larkin Cassell. Danser plays tenor, and leads the group – the vocal cuts (about half the album's tracks) feature Randy Maddison
singing. Titles include the classic "Sombre Guitar", plus "Inferno", "And Once My Love", "Badinage", "Time Is Laughing", "Sunday Morning", and "Turning The Corner".
