Richard Pinhas
Pulse Records (UK) 1980
PULSE001 (LP) w/insert, postcard
sleeve : EX+(SOC, one wrinkle on back.)
media : EX+/NM-(some very slightly surface noises, still good.)

This album was released in 1985 by Blue Box, a German group consisting of Reiner Winterschaladen (tp), Aloys Kott (b), and Peter Eisold (dr, per). It was influenced by Miles Davis during his funk period, but with computerized drums, modulated bass, and other electronics, the sound was innovative from start to finish. There are moments that remind me of Wolfgang Dauner's fierce masterpiece "Output" on ECM, and the Kraut Electronics masterpiece "Zero Set", which is said to be one of the proto-techno albums. The experimental jazz funk with an edge similar to Akira Sakata and Toshinori Kondo is also good. Reiner Winterschaladen's trumpet, which reminds me of Don Cherry, floats deeply in the background on tracks like A3.

A3: The Last Kings of Thule (Part 1)
B4: Greenland (dedicated to F.S.Fitzgerald)
