Review by Bonnek
2 stars This isn't an album that will make you happy. Even with everyone from the previous line-up - minus the keyboard player - on board, Doldinger took a complete turn towards pop-music with this album, and as far as I've heard he never returned to the energetic jazz rock of the beginnings nor the spacerock-jazz of their mid-70s period.

Iguaçu is a harmless pop-jazz album, of course it's executed professionally but this kind of instrumental easy-listening jazz sits very far on the bottom end of what I want to listen to. This music would even annoy me in a supermarket, let alone in my stereo.

Doldinger always had a knack for writing easy and catchy tunes, but in combination with the Latin party atmosphere of this album it doesn't result in even one track that I find worth listening. Given how the band sank even deeper with the next albums, I'll stick with 2 stars.

2 stars Just two years and one album released after great Cross Collateral , but Passport is very different band there. Fashion of smooth jazz influenced them too strong, and this album is in general pleasant jazzy listening with some brass sound, plenty of world fusion,even some new age traces.

Happily, funk grooves still are part of the music, so it saved the album from being total disaster. Klaus sax is more sound for cocktail party or TV commercial, that progressive fusion. I still like bass grooves, but it's all - not too much for the full album. Release for Latin-funk pop-jazz lovers.

4 stars To start, I must confess that, in addition to being a jazz fusion fan, I'm also a fan of Latin jazz, so that colours my impression of Passport's Iguacu album. Also, it appears that many members of the Prog Archives like their music heavy and intense, so the first Passport albums might be closer to ... (read more)

3 stars After all the spacey experimental shabangs with the previous albums, Klaus decided to go for Latin sounds hence the title referring to the famous falls in Brazil. This is quite different from anything they were doing before. Most of the classic lineup is still here (minus Kristian) and 2 new m ... (read more)
