van't Hoff, Jasper/Pork Pie - Transitory (24 bit remastered/mini-lp sleeve)
First time ever on CD for this minor classic fusion album from MPS, originally released in 1974! Featuring a great band: Charlie Mariano-sopranosax, altosax, flute, bamboo-flute, nagaswaram, Philip Catherine-electric guitar, acoustic guitar, Jasper van't Hof-electric piano, prepared organ, grand piano, celesta, J.F. Jenny-Clark-bass and Aldo Romano-drums.
"This is one of the greatest fusion recordings ever...Mariano was so deeply influenced by this collaboration (reportedly so was Jimmy Giuffre who did a couple of electric records inspired by it) that it colored and moved his playing forward by light years as both an improviser and composer."-Thom Jurek/All Music Guide
