Review by kenethlevine

4 stars With "Sky Blue", Klaus Doldinger tips his hat and his planetary axis to German electronic music, while making it his own as only he can do. The two-part "Ataraxia" alone is worth the cost of the disk, beginning with gently hypnotic synths and building to a crescendo of vivacious sax-led testimonies that never completely drown out the keyboard rhythms. This is music that can appeal to jazz, progressive, funk, world, and even remotely adventurous new age fans.

Keyboards do tend to dominate when the sax is not to the fore, and on the title cut, "Sky Blue", the synthesizer doodling reaches its apex without wearing thin. Roy Louis' guitar and Dieter Petereit's bass provide the backing that makes Passport one of the more listenable groups of their ilk. This is jazz for sure, but in a more loosely structured rather than free form sense. Listen to "Mandrake" for an even better example, with guitar leads not unlike some of Andy Latimer's workouts on "Rain Dances", but with a greater respect for the overall piece. It's not so much dance music, but music that dances. Another highlight is the chugging "Loco-motive", in which Doldinger's flute simulates the whistle of the train when actual audio samples are not being used, and his flutes elsewhere are sprightly and melodically integrated with the sax. Quintessential travelling music, it skips and careens along the rails with its own frothy character.

A refuge of level headed coolness as it was in 1978, "Ataraxia" remains as relevant today as then, and a passport to further enjoyment of this classy act.

1 stars After the pop-jazz that preceded, Doldinger reshuffled the line-up of his backing band again in an attempt to find a new vibe for his music. I'm afraid the vibe is still very much pop-jazz that is further brought down with new age music sounds, especially due to the keyboards.

The result is somewhere between Passport's own pop-jazz, Alan Parsons Project and Oldfield 80s new-age. That's a combination of elements that stands very far from the creative excitement I want to hear in music, though I can understand other people might still find some quality through what rate as impermeable layers of turn-offs for me.

The number of disappointments are countless on this album. How else can I describe the sticky saxophone pop of Mandrake, Locomotive and Alegria, or the faceless new-age relaxation tape muzak of Ataracia and The Secret. A really bad album for me.

4 stars The last good album before drastic change in direction. Passport is Klaus Doldinger's vehicle. An extremely productive composer, performer, the band allows for some stretching out alongside his other works for German TV, where he provided countless soundtracks for noted TV-series, as well as ...
