Marco · Rupesh · Harida - Inside Out
In our trilogy about albums of the label Nazca Music Inside Out takes an unique place . This album is a blend of Smooth Jazz, Jazz Fusion, World Music and New Age. Anew the album is appointed as Smooth Jazz but it doesn't fit in the usual radio format, one awaits. The tunes are with more than seven minutes in average extensive and gave the musicians the opportunity to develop the atmosphere and the solos after their imagination.
The kind of music some of you may have heared by Third Force and Yulara are brought to a more comprehensive level. The influence of the Indian transcendental music is to be sensed at all locates. Probably the music is a product of the Indian experience of the band members as showed up in their biographies.
describes the mood as follow:
Baba is a typical example of this meditation music with repetitives music-motives and a carrying lead music-theme accompanied by a complex percussion structure.
Zero starts with dreamy strings introducing to a guitar melody. Sustained guitar tones are interchanging with rapid scale passages with a jazzy attitude.
Monsoon, a tropical wind in India, is the motif of the next guitar tune continuing the play of the former piece.
Step In is an uptempo Jazz Fusion tune with strong World Music elements. Anew one can hear the combination of repetitives music-motives (keyboard) and a leading melody (guitar) now in a quicker way. Remarkable the perfect percussion background.
Pura Vida starts with a picturesque percussion intro followed by dreamy keyboard sounds leading into a guitar staccato accompanied by scatting vocals and an extensive congas solo. In the middle of the track an awesome flute takes over the leading role.
Buddha Moon offers a propulsing percussion background with keyboard overdubs and an extensive guitar solo.
If your musical mind is open to new musical experiences, this album is a worthy entrance to a new world. Those who had listened to Can, Third Force, Yulara, Software, Tangerine Dream, Peter Seiler or Quietforce will discover similarities.
