One of the coolest albums ever from the legendary Cometa sound library – a set that's every bit as weird and wonderful as you'd guess from its cover image of a hand holding a flower with eyeballs on each petal! The music's maybe not as trippy as that picture, but it does have lots of cool and groovy touches – sweet Fender Rhodes at some points, jazzy reeds at others, and even some more evocative passages that almost have a deeper soundtrack vibe – but which soon return to the kind of tight, funky numbers that we love so much in Italian sound library material from this time!
The seduction musical operates from the invigorating introduction of the first song "Rash", one of five jazz-funk killings in this unusual album that the standard deviation of musical genres is singularly wide. Here clavinet, drums, saxophone, flute, guitar and bass are entirely at the service of the groove, and it is could not be more serious! Then comes the well-named "Daydream", where lyrical ballad instruments (flute, Rhodes, harmonica, violin) are being successively entrusted with the progression of the melody, scalable and non-repetitive. She gave way to "Simpton" strange melody built on flute amid strident strings and inspiring unecaptivante tension. Rude awakening with the arrival of "Bike", a qualified puissantétonnament groove of "bossa Moderata" in the pocket of money, because it must be some surprises in illustrator ... We quickly pass the countrycheesy of "Gadder" to find out "Ferry Boat" the same groove severe entrentendu previously - and the same quality of performance. We would like it runs longer, but the average length of the songs on the album is unfortunately only two minutes thirty seconds ... This is the case of very short "Reverie", a surge in good time when John Klemmer saxophone (soprano) has a echoplex to evoke the soft errors of a floating spirit and wanderer, and "Diplomat", a quiet swing where the soloist, the soprano always, is at liberty to discuss "thoughtlessness "... That music that closes a first face zapping quite eclectic and reminiscent of what the French offered at the time: the labels or Freesound Timing for example, or polymorphic productions of Jean-Claude Pierric. Latin library definitely has nothing to do with the Anglo-Saxon deliveries ... In comparison, the B-side is a little less sharp with only two energetic jazz-funk songs ("Canty" and the incredible "Obstinacy" where the clavinet doubles bass played on the Moog), a little more cheese ("Swallow", "Happy Fire" and "Old Scotch"), the delicate "Glamour" where swirling flute dares to point groovy riffs on a classy lawn violins, and "Riddle" To conclude, providing dialogue Rhodes flute amid jazzlé gèrement groovy. Displease dee-jays in the fussy and other collectors, good delibrary disk is first designed to offer consistency or a variety of pieces sufficient for the needs of the illustrator. This is the case of Daydream, that there comes a little late in the chronology of the genre (presumably 1977), is none the less a very consistent work: the feel musicians, we guess talented, has much to do. It is this impression that we retain after listening: the memory as a powerful and united as a rhythmic light but deep lyricism, if not deep, beautifully carried by the wind instruments, flute etsoprano head. Yes, with its rich harmonies and happy as much as by the diversity of its themes, this disc
