AIR-S/T, LP, 1977, JAPAN


If you can skate around the insufferable Kozmigroov genre tag that's latterly been grafted onto this breed of free flowing cosmic jazz funk like some Cronenberg-ian tumor in the shape of a hackysack, this is really the prime article at hand here; this Japanese quartet with the all too common name (shared with everyone from Henry Threadgill's old 70's outfit to Herbie Mann's backing band to the French 90's electropop exports) having taken the most spectrally wandering implications from early 70's Miles Davis and teased them out yet further, 'til all thats left is windblown tracers shimmering in the ether; their attack placing them in immediate proximity to the distended and drug swaddled fusion burn of Australia's Quasar.

Glad my original review was of some assistance to you. And sure, "free flowing cosmic jazz funk" is a far more economical tag.
