Balance of Happiness

by: Klaus Doldinger's Passport

Since 1971, saxophonist Klaus Doldinger has mostly recorded creative fusion under the group name of "Passport." This Atlantic CD features his soprano and occasional tenor backed by a five-piece rhythm section comprised of some top German musicians. The music, all composed by Doldinger, effectively mixes together R&B, rock, pop and even some straightahead jazz into an impressive brew with Doldinger often extending himself with challenging solos. Several of the melodies are memorable, there are a wide variety of moods and grooves covered and the CD is proof that fusion can be played with imagination. ~ Scott Yanow
