4.0 out of 5 stars Nucleus - 1970, 21 April 2012

This review is from: Elastic Rock (Audio CD)
This album has been rereleased in a uniquely original cardboard CD box. Fitting with the level of artistry and experimentation in the actual album itself. It captures the essence of early 70's jazz funk experimentation. Though it becomes clear that this album has not been digitally remastered. It still captures the spirit and groove of the times, that I, who was born later in that decade, am beginning to explore with other bands too. It is an interesting and fulfilling journey. Lots of very good musicianship, that you would struggle to find in decades gone by. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sum of all the parts may not always gell but when they do-watch out. A law of physics., 1 Jun 2013
This review is from: Elastic Rock (Audio CD)
Now put together a band of serious jazz musos and knock up a range of interesting pieces and watch what happens. Live they were mesmerising. In the days of loose was good and sweaty, these brothers were tighter than the waist of my trousers now are. How lucky was a nut head fourteen year old head banger to see Ian Carr, Karl Jenkins and Brian Smith on the same stage and get it. Of course we all knew Chris Spedding was a wanna be metal axe muncher but the rest of the lads kept him caged in complex free flow of sound that must have played havoc with his want to cut loose. But man they were good. Brian Smith-one of the giants of tenor-at his best before fluttering into the midnight zone of syrup and bucks-sax for lurvers etc. Ian Carr's liquid notes still bubble like a Northumberland brook. Jeff Clyne basses away like a trooper and Mr Jenkins as ever the serious man of notes-keeps the class on its toes. Aright John, you can cobble a set of drums. Yeah and Speds-you were pretty damn cool. Elastic Rock is still a decent listen. Only forty plus minutes, but high quality jazz without the showiness of the cross over era (Weather Report) and not as indulgent as the Softs could be on a one badly strangled note. A recommended five star gem...go and buy it now!
