Passport - Infinity Machine (1976)
The sixth album from this German band.
Passport was a quartet with a lineup of harmonizer, saxophones, moog, keyboards, bass, percussion, drums and guitars.
The band continued on from their good first albums. The cover art-work are rather cheeky and a bit.... colourful.
Their take on fusion is also in the same vein here.
Take a lot of Return To Forever and Weather Report. Mix them together and you largely get Passport, Klaus Doldinger's band.
Klaus Doldinger lets the other musicians here room to perform some very good solos. This is not all about him and his saxophones. Far from it. Passport sounds like a proper band where all get their say in the sound.
There are some really cool solos here which makes me listen up. This as per usual on the Passport albums.
The result is another good album which fusion fans should check out.
