3 stars Quite nice live-recording of Pierre Moerlen's (Rest In Peace) Gong recorded in 1988 and released ten years later. I personally like this album because of using of mallet instruments there - and Pierre Moerlen's drumming of course. The music is not "something-very- eternal-and-aspirative" jazzrockfusion, but these crazy "good ol' mallets" save the music finely! Secondly I like this record because of the chance to listen to the live version of my fave Pierre Moerlen's Gong tune (till now I still don't know why exactly - is this symbiosis between this melody and juicy mallet sound?) Second Wind! In addition there are a bunch of the other "sweets" like Leave It Open, Drum Alone, Soli and Xtasea. Relaxing jazzrockfusion with "singing" mallets!
