Almost but not quite a Turning Point for British jazz,
This review is from: Turning Point - Creatures of the Night & Silent Promise (Audio CD)
This is a good place to check out some of the best of British jazz-rock from the 1970s.
There are some memorable tunes here that are really well played - My Lady C, Vanishing Dream, Silent Promise and Green Tranquility perhaps stand out most.
Pepi Lemur's largely scat singing is the most distinctive aspect, with Brian Miller's swirling synths and Clyne's bass. Something like a British version of Return to Forever I'd say.
I saw them play Southport Arts Centre in 1978 and immediatly bought their 2 albums. But somehow, I never grew to love these records and I can't put my finger on why.
Well worth listening to though.

I know these albums and Pepe Lemer's vocalisations are incredibly irritating and spoil the tunes which are pretty good in general. I'd be keen for copies with Ms. Lemer's vocals out of the mix.
