5.0 out of 5 stars Is this the time ?, 29 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Steam Session Tapes (Audio CD)
Never heard of Gary Windo, as a solo artist but on the strength of the collaborators (Nick Mason, of Pink Floyd, Robert Wyatt and Hugh Hopper of Soft Machine,, Carla Blay to name but a few) on this disc I took the plunge.
What was I expecting? I am not sure something along the lines of Nick Masons ‘Fictitious Sports’ possibly, Soft Machine perhaps. What I have though is a Gary Windo Album fitting somewhere between the more accessible elements of Matching Mole and Miles Davis ‘Batch’s Brew’. This is a great album easy to listen to and rewarding when listened to and not put on as background muzak.
Starting with the Clarinet solo instrumental of 'Ginkie' and ending with the rather good ‘Red river Valley’ the long lost son of ‘Red River Rock’. The stand out track is for me ‘Stand Fast’ like many songs on the album a suite of ideas pulled together in a single song.

The Bass is nice and punchy when it needs to be and on the whole the album sounds very good much better than some Gonzo Products.

Pink Floyd this is not, but a classy lost gem of the 70’s British Jazz scene this is recommended
