a jazz-rock surprise,
This review is from: Waka/Jawaka (Audio CD)
Having been knocked out by the brilliance of Apostrophe & One Size... when they were first released, as a teenager I then bought this thinking it would be more of the same. It wasnt.
However, the more I played it, the more I liked it & I still enjoy it today. It was the first album that I owned that I recognised as jazz because of the brass section & it took me into new areas of music. Subsequently I realised that Islands by King Crimson & Bundles by Soft Machine which had been favourites of mine whilst at school (mainly because of the guitar playing) were in fact jazz-rock, but Waka Jawaka was the realisation of my interest in the genre.
For more sophisticated tastes.
