Transit Express - Couleurs Naturelles (1977)
The third and final album from this French band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of violin, electric violin, guitars, synths, clavinet, piano, electric piano, bass, electric bass, ring modulator, percussion and drums.
The band had up to now delivered two pretty good fusion albums. Albums fusions fans should check out.
This band comes from the same country as Jean Luc Ponty. And the music on this album is not far away from Jean Luc Ponty's best and most fusion orientated albums.
Couleurs Naturelles is a thirty-three minutes long/short album and we are talking fusion here of the more traditional kind of fusion.
The tempo is mid to fast.
There is a lot of guitars, violins and piano here. Even some acoustic guitars which sounds like classic guitars... and we get some classic guitars on this album.
These thirty-three minutes runs too fast as they are pretty delightful listening.
There is no outstanding tracks here or even great pieces of music. Fusion fans should really check out this album. A good album indeed.
