Freeport - "duanelessness" (Rec. Nov. 1979, Germany)

It was quite some time ago that the mighty osurec presented us with this little euro-jazz-rock masterpiece headed by pianist Michael Berger (responsible for most of the composition). The others are Michael Sievert and Manni Naumann. At this point all these names should be quite recognizable to the fans of the genre. This was recorded in Nov. 1979 at Atelier Fur Tontechnik, Oyten 1. Still to me is a mystery what the term duanelessness is meant to signify (no indication on the back or anywhere) but in no way does this interfere with enjoyment of this masterpiece of ingenious harmonies and powerful piano originality.

Their next record, the alternating current from a year later, was far more improvised and meandering and to me is a little less interesting. Here I want to present you with perfect audio sound so we can enjoy these musicians in our own living rooms playing for us, 32 years later, as if it is today.

Now in the days to come, look forward to more rare goodies: fusion, folk, library music, straight up rock, and in no time at all our friend master shige will be back from his own August summer break with more treasures to prepare us for the cold of fall and back to prog-school.
