Passport - Doldinger 1971 @ 320 (German fusion)

The man behind the many excellent Passport albums was Klaus Doldinger and on this their first release, he names the album after himself. The band, in various guises went onto to make about 20 albums before being disbanded in 1996.

This was not his first group, he was a member of The German Jazz Quartet from 1962, until forming Passport.

The Passport sound is here, but probably not fully formed. It is , however, very good fusion.


Klaus Doldinger - alto, soprano & tenor saxes, keyboards
Jimmy Jackson - organ
Olaf Kübler - tenor saxophone, flute
Udo Lindenberg - drums
Lothar Meid - bass guitar

Before Passport, Doldinger was also on Motherwood. Anyone? (PLEASE!)

Hägar said...

He was in a band called (Doldinger's) Motherhood.

Oooops, I meant if anyone had the first Motherhood (I Feel So Fre) that could be so generous to share. TIA!

These two albums of Passport are very very good. Thanks for both of them.

I've been trying hard to find in the net another very good Passport album, in my opinion, and which is "Cross-Colateral". I'd greatly appreciate someone could tell me where to find a post of it.

Hello thanks for a great post!
I'm a fun of passport too.
Unfortunately, the extra links died (for Passport - Looking Through, and Passport - Infinity Machine, 1976.

Does anybody have a clue if we can still get them somewhere?
