Jade Warrior - Floating World (1974)



The first album by Jade Warrior which was to set a new phase of more ambient, minimal /oriental/ psychedelic/ spacerock.

 With just a duo of Duhig & Field and numerous guests 'Floating World' is very high on atmospherics with touches of jazz and oriental spice carefully woven into a beatifull peacefull and relaxing affair, which at times is punctuated by more dynamic flourishes. Excellent!!
