3.0 out of 5 stars a Good Chapter for the Mann, 21 April 2003
This review is from: Chapter III Vol 1 (Audio CD)
This album is a good effort that features ex members of the group Manfred Mann who issued such an eclectic mix of music styles from Jazz,RnB,Pop and yes sike,so when their time had run along came Chapter Three with an album that will certainly appeal to the prog fan and maybe at a push some psych fans(though there probably isn't a psych track on this)),this album starts of with a Track titled"Travelling Lady" which is an extension from a Manfred Mann instrumental track titled A b Side,which featured some good fuzzed up guitar,on this it's no longer an instrumental and has been turned into a stoned sounding number awash with bursts of brass and a heavy fuzzed up organ with vocals that are fairly quiet and breathy,this starts this album off very nicely as there's more of the same to follow!Other tracks that stand out to me are "Sometimes" which is a lovely mellow number with those breathy vocals at the fore and a track that may appeal to the sike crowd,this has bursts of brass but not too obtrusive,certainly one of the better songs on this album!"One Way Glass"with it's thumping bass line and neat brass arrangements,this is a fairly left of field poppy number again with a sikey feel that maybe due to those gentle vocals but this has a jazzy feel in parts with brass which raises it's head throughout this album.
There's 2 tracks that didn't do anything for me,and they were"A Study In Accuracy and Konekuff"as both are the most jazz sounding tracks on this album with the time changes that go along with it,but this album has a lot to commend it,and features some well good fuzzed up organ,Good brass(when it's not too jazzy)and good breathy flute which adds to the stoned feel of this curiosity!!To end up this review,if you don't like brass in your music and with a jazzy vibe,approach with caution but if you enjoy imaganitive proggy sounds with a definite late 60s/early 70s vibe(and a funky one at times) you could do worse than to give this a shot!
