Atmospheres feat. Clive Stevens – Voyage To Uranus
Saxman / keyboard player Clive Stevens from Bristol, England, was among the earliest to explore the nexus of jazzrock and electric jazz in his two 1974 albums. And both releases, “Atmospheres” and “Voyage to Uranus” have stood the test of time.
Stevens and a core group of cats, pianist/ guitarist Ralph Towner, John Abercrombie on guitar, James Earle Johnson on percussion, Stu Woods on bass and Michael Thabo Carvin on drums – turn in a set that musically, is a bit all over the place. The raw power on ”Voyage To Uranus“ was electric, beyond belief. So do not expect to hear something mellow, this is dark, sometimes scary music for those late nights. Still compelling after all these year, something like a blast from the past.
A masterpiece and for the first time on CD.
