Rhesus O - Rhesus O (1971)

With future Magma keyboarder Jean-Pol Asseline"Rhesus O" played a lively inventive jazz rock fusion with lots of excellent sax playing. The organ and wordless vocals add a nice mysterious quality.

Echoes of Miles Davis and Frank Zappa can be heard. There's also some Magma Zeuhl style flavors coming through which on occasion resembles there first two albums which were more brassy and avant jazz rock based.

A fine album!
