Klaus Schulze – Trancefer
Re-Release of the originally 1972 released Klaus Schulze Album „Trancefer“. Incl. extended linernotes and bonustracks.
Always a soundwave in front of the rivalry, Schulze is presenting his album together with the percussionist Mike Shrieve (Santana), who performs real marvels on his two barrels, and the cellist Wolfgang Tiepold, who forms a pleasant contrast to Schulze’s often hard and strictly synthesizer patterns with his warm touch. (Stereoplay, Germany, 1982)
Klaus Schulze talks about „Trancefer“:
Becaus of the cooperation in „GO“-project (Stomu Yamashta, Klaus Schulze, Phil Manzanera, Steve Winwood, Rosko Gee, Al DiMeola und Mikael Shrieve), I developed a good connection with Mike Shrieve. For the concert in Paris we only had the material from the first “GO”-record, which was about 40 minutes worth. Since the gig was supposed to last for two hours, we played some extra stuff as an encore, such as “Dear Mr. Fantasy” (Traffic) and “Black Magic Woman” (Santana). When we still had 20 minutes left, I said ”Well,I’m playing on my own for those 20 minutes”. So I was playing and suddenly Michael comes in and starts to improvise on his drums. Fantastic! Obviously he really liked this Schulze music because the songs were so long and he could freely improvise. At any rate, when I asked him if he wanted to play on my Wahnfried records („Time Actor“ 1979, „Tonwelle“ 1981, „Richard Wahnfried Plays Megatone“ 1984) as well as on „Transefer“ and „Audentity (1983) he immediately jumpd at the chance.
