This is the only studio recording by German singer Rimona Francis released on MPS in 1978, and is a milestone in scat jazz grooves. The backing musicians are Leszek Zaldo (ss,ts,ft), Jasper Van't Hof (p,og,synth), Barry Finnerty (g), Frank Tusa (b), Buddy Williams (dr). Francis' superb scatting is of course a must, but the rhythm section is very tight and the galactic PPG Synthesizer sound played by Jasper Van't Hof is absolutely amazing. Known as a rare groove classic, there are also many progressive rock elements. This is a great album that will never fade away, and is one of the best albums of all time. Jasper Van't Hof's skill is too much. This is the MPS Original Vinyl Series reissue on heavy vinyl in 2001.
