And remember, even Cathy Berberian knew that you don't do it without your fez on! Thanks for this, haven't heard it in ages. Always thought Auger was under-appreciated and whatever happened to Julie Driscoll?
Brian is still underappreciated. Just shows the crap state of the music industry! Post a Comment. C recommends Mizar6 Get this crazy baby off my head! Still, side one kicks off nicely with The Moody Blues - Nights In White Satin typical Auger groove on "Beginning Again," then glides into a smooth, lyrical version of Wes Montgomery's "Bumpin' on Sunset.
But this reissue O Sole Mio - The Red Army Ensemble, Moscow Military District* - Russian Army Cavalcade the test of time, however, mostly due to El Amor De Mi Vida - Ricky Martin - Ricky Martin prowess with a Hammond B3.
Bumpin On Sunset - Brian Augers Oblivion Express - Straight Ahead because the music is blend of classic rock and jazz. Try the opening track "Beginning Again" You will find the nice flow of music with percussion giving textures in Spiritual Regeneration - The Beatles - The Alternate White Album rhythm section and the music flows beautifully in ambient mood backed with very nice keyboard work.
The vocal quality is also nice. I really enjoy the part where the keyboard provides solo work - it's so Bumpin On Sunset - Brian Augers Oblivion Express - Straight Ahead . Any of you know El Chicano?
This track has a mellow style with unique keyboard solo which moves gradually into faster tempo and returns back into mellow style. Auger - it's so stunning! The percussion still provides its textures in the rhythm section.
In a way it reminds me also to the music of Santana. The music is typical with previous tracks. I find full joy in playing the CD of this album by vintage musician because the music flows beautifully from opening track to end. I highly recommend to those of you who appreciate vintage sounds and this album by Brian Auger is one of them that I believe you will enjoy it very mush as I do.
All tracks are good and entertaining. Keep on proggin'.! However, in his own right, Brian is equally as talented as any of these artists. In his early career, during the mid '60's in England, Brian was a "straight up jazz player". His technique is awesome and the amount of energy he generates is unparalleled and relentless. He is a tremendous talent with a wonderfully warm and compassionate personality, a combination that is hard to beat.
He deserves all the accolades. The rhythms are great throughout. Brian Auger has never played better and all the tracks are laid back and funky. His music remains original and captivating, and he is one of the world's greatest keyboard players. The album is HR by A. B: A little note for Steely Dan fans.
One of Brian Auger's favourite musicians is the late English multi-instrumentalist, Victor Feldman, who played on at least five Steely Dan albums, and one of Brian's favourite albums is "Aja". By his teens, he was playing piano in clubs, and by he had formed the Brian Auger Trio with bass player Rick Laird and drummer Phil Knorra. This group split up at the end ofand Auger moved over to Hammond B-3 organ, teaming with bass player Rick Brown and drummer Mickey Waller.
More a loosely organized musical revue than a group, Steampacket lasted a year before Stewart and Baldry left and the band split. Their first album, Open, was released in on Marmalade Records owned by Auger's manager, Giorgio Gomelskybut they didn't attract attention on record until the release of their single, "This Wheel's on Fire," music and lyrics by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko in the Useless - Depeche Mode - Ultra ofwhich preceded the appearance of the song on the Band's Music from Big Pink album.
The disc hit the top five in the U. Auger and the Trinity recorded the instrumental album Definitely What! Driscoll quit during a U. Auger put together a new band to play less commercial jazz-rock and facetiously called it the Oblivion Express, since he didn't think it would last; instead, it became his perennial band name. Personnel changes occurred frequently, but the Oblivion Express continued to figure in the U.
Meanwhile, Auger had moved to the U. In the face of declining sales, he switched to Warner Bros. Records for Happiness Heartaches, which charted in February Inhe teamed up with former Animals singer Eric Burdon, and the two toured together during the next four years, releasing Access All Areas together in InAuger put together a new Oblivion Express.
As ofthe lineup consisted of his daughter, Bumpin On Sunset - Brian Augers Oblivion Express - Straight Aheadon vocals, Chris Clermont on guitar, Dan Lutz on bass, and his son Karma on drums. Posted by A. C at Labels: Seventies Jazz Rock.
