Most of the time acting on impulse can be a terrible thing. For example: a person will see a fancy looking coffee maker in the Argos catalogue and then just buy it from the store simply because it looks "fancy", only for them to get home and realize they've got no use for it whatsoever. "Curse you, impulse!" is their thought at those kind of moments.
But impulse isn't always a bad thing. I downloaded "Morning Dance" by Spyro Gyra here on Amazon on the spur of the moment. I have no idea who Spyro Gyra are, or what the names of the group members are, or even what other music they've produced. All I know was that I fancied listening to a bit of jazz music for a change, and this album was one of the first things I saw on here. I bought it, listened to it...and I enjoyed what I heard.
There are nine songs on this album; and they either make me think about walking up and down the aisles of a supermarket, or they sound suited to a 70's Saturday evening entertainment show. I don't mean that in a bad way, that's just what they make me think of. I like the combination of songs on here. They consist of a mixture of relaxing tunes like MORNING DANCE and RASUL, and fast-paced upbeat pieces like STARBURST and END OF ROMANTICISM. But to me the best thing about these tracks is that there are no lyrics to them. They're beautifully laid out as they are and any lyrics, I feel, would've ruined the overall quality.
As a 90's guy I didn't think I would ever come to like a jazz album released in 1978, but "Morning Dance" has proven me wrong. If you're feeling low and you need something to lift you up, then this album is well worth trying out.
