Dobermensch
3 stars The first magma offshoot by the mutinous Francois Cahen (piano) and Yochk'o Seffer (saxophones). Both of whom appeared on Magma's first two jazzy sounding albums. I was pleasantly surprised by 'Z=7L' which sounds like a cheery and bouncy Magma - with a lot of really cool operatic Zeuhl vocals by Mauricia Platon. There isn't the same feeling of impending doom present as you get with Magma. This is far more playful.

'Z=7L', leans more towards the Fusion end of jazz. Refreshingly light and jumpy with quite a few references to '1001˚Centigrade' thrown in from '71. Easier to digest than Magma and not so brain damaging. If you like this, you'll love 'Weidorje' and Yochko Seffer's excellent solo album, both from '78.

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
