Review
The little known but brilliant quartet Quantum Jump, led by the very interesting eccentric musician: keyboard, vocals- Rupert Hine, with cohorts and fellow musicians: John G. Perry on bass & vocals (Caravan)/ Trevor Morais on drums/Mark Warner on Guitars & vocals. This re-master of their debut album shows just how different an approach they had the music in the late 70´. An interesting mix of funky tunes, pop and prog tendencies. A year later they released “Barracuda” (1977). This album also holds 5 bonus tracks. They had an unexpected hit with the tune” Lone Ranger” (this outing holds the original tune and a remix from 1979). Please don’t expect long epic prog tunes, with the exception of “Something At The Bottom Of The Sea” part 1-4. Where they musically come across like a laid back Colosseum II. So not for everyone, still an exotic album, that could be a gift for the right minded listener!! If I were to compare them to a band from that particular era it would be a mix between Café Jaques and Automatic Man! Rupert Hine went on to create several solo albums! For the most adventurous of you, give it a whirl!! As always with Esoteric, this album comes with a fine booklet and well written essay!
