Format: LP

Genre: Psych

In stock


**Picture Disc** Jazz Rock ensemble from Munich led by German drummer Klaus Weiss  and Austrian pianist Fritz Pauer and found in 1971. When Pauer presented Weiss some new songs, the two of them gathered Belgian guitarist Philip Catherine, Dutch flutist Ferdinand Povel and American drummer Jimmy Woode (R.I.P.) and formed Sunbirds. The recordings of their debut took place at the Union Studios in Munich on 24th August 1971. Weiss had good connections with various labels and the album was eventually released on MPS Basf the same year.''Sunbirds'' features also as a guest Juan Romero on percussion.

The style of Sunbirds was a cross between Electric Jazz and Psychedelic Kraut-Fusion with changing atmospheres and plenty of enjoyable rhythms and solos.Quite diverse music, that goes from hypnotic and more psychedelic material to dynamic and energetic Fusion with good breaks and solos.The first relies much on the mellow rhythm section and the delicate flutes of Povel, the more powerful moments though find the band in full collaboration with Catherine's very effective guitar work next to Pauer's long and virtuosic solos.
