Jade Warrior biography
The music of JADE WARRIOR is somewhat difficult to describe. Among the influences you'll hear in various aspects of JADE WARRIOR's music are rock, jazz, Latin, Japanese, African, ambient, and the kitchen sink (almost literally - there are spoons and an empty whiskey bottle in there somewhere!). It's often melodically simple, and rhythmically complex... or vice versa. This is the kind of music that everyone can hear different dimensions within and is conqueror of none.

At Peace
Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Memo_anathemo

2 stars Following my reviews of Jade Warrior, I arrived to the album "At Peace" appropriate title for the style of music portrayed in the album; three long pieces full of relaxation, peace, flutes, slow guitar riffs, environmental sounds, synthesizers ... at the end, very new age. The album is not bad, but nothing compared to other albums in their discography. Perhaps, the most relevant thing about it is the fact that it was the last album where the legend Tony Duhig, co-founder of the band, participated. He died one year later. So, definitely this album is a must for those Jade Warrior fans, who followed the band since their very first album.

Breathing the Storm
Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Memo_anathemo

4 stars Mainly instrumental, I never expected such a beautiful album with the tendency of new age music. I knew Jade Warrior with the first self-titled album and RELEASED, which focused more on psychedelia and space prog, with elements of folk rock. I've heard about the change through time to more relaxing music but never had the chance until now and so far what I have listened to, I have liked it. Breathing the Storm is a beautiful album of instrumental songs that invite you to dream of green landscapes and the wind whistling in the ocean on a cloudy rainy afternoon. Perhaps, the album is not so daring in progressive music but it's beautiful indeed and inspiring. I will keep on listening to Jade Warrior previous efforts to continue discovering the inflection point.

Distant Echoes
Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Memo_anathemo

4 stars After RELEASED, I knew Jade Warrior had a lot of albums with a different touch to their first two albums, more folk and new age oriented than psychedelic. Yesterday, I had the fortune to listen to different albums and one of them was this DISTANT ECHOES. The cover made me think that probably I was going to hear a lot of prehispanic sounds of Mexico or South America, then I was surprised to see the names "Theo Travis" and "David Cross" in the guest musicians lineup, that grew my interest. While listening to it, I notice that it has beautiful musical passages, and yes, there were some new age sounds but also I heard folk rock and space prog sounds. The album is a perfect variation on musical arrangements. To tell you the truth, I really liked it because it is not boring, it is interesting, it is varied, it is relaxing, and you get to hear the whole album. Now, I'm very interested in following the process of change after RELEASED.

Waves
Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Epignosis
Special Collaborator Eclectic Prog Team

4 stars Like the tide, sometimes high, sometimes low, sometimes boisterous, sometimes peaceful, this album possesses much variation despite maintaining an almost eternal steadiness. Musically, expect generous quantities of symphonic, jazz, and psychedelic progressive rock, making this a wondrously eclectic album. Guest musician Steve Winwood adds quite a bit of flair to Waves with the keyboard instruments. To be fair, the pieces don't flow as united works of music; that is to say, this could have safely been divided into eight or so tracks. For an alternative, more avant-garde experience, try playing both parts simultaneously!

"Waves (part I)" Usually tumultuous music is loud and energetic, but the first five minutes of Jade Warrior's 1975 album is quiet though unsettled. A quarter of the way in, a dominant piano leads into a more structured jazz passage, complete with easy percussion and moaning bass slides. Swirling flute dazzles during perhaps the most satisfying section of the album. The next section focuses on a gentle acoustic guitar. Gentle woodwinds carry the listener away in a reverie of sound.

"Waves (part II)" As with part one, the first five minutes consist of quiet, rolling sounds, this time almost pastoral. Chiming tones and distant electric guitar enter thereafter. The funkiest (and loudest) section of the album features a repetitive groove and a blistering guitar solo, followed by whimsical woodwinds and a gritty keyboard jam. After all that, there is a return to the soothing pastoral music, culminating in a the album's most triumphant passage. The final moments, almost a musical epilogue, offers mellow washes of sound, like a musical cocoon.

Waves
Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by GruvanDahlman
Prog Reviewer

3 stars I listened again to this album the other morning. Me and my fourteen month old son enjoyed our brekafast as the sun shone in throug our window and the world suddenly seemed so incredibly beautiful. Waves is a beautiful album, there is no doubt about it. The gentleness and relaxing mood (dare I say ambient?) is quite breathtaking. Someone compared it to Camel's Nude and to some extent I do agree.

There are several sections in here that gets my attention, with beautiful flute and at times a biting electric guitar, especially in the second part which, as others said before, is more in the realm of fusion. At least that is true in parts. The whole of the album is more of a gentle exercise in mellowness and ambiance, a british excursion into the worlds beyond our own european existance. There are, as evident by the cover, asian influences on Waves, which are very relaxing.

Though beautiful and relaxing I can't help but feel it is more pleasant than anything. Great as it is, still it is merely pleasant. That should not, however, deter anyone from listening to the album. I promise you, it will be a listening experience you'll enjoy if you care for relaxing music. It may seem like a contradiction giving it only three stars then but that is the thing, though I love listening to Waves it becomes the soundtrack of the moment. Not that much remains, besides the feeling of pleasantness. (Is that even a word?)

Conclusion: Waves is a great piece of music. Relaxing, gentle and calming. Still, it's good for the moment but fails to capture my imagination for any longer period of time. Still I will never sell my copy. It is a precious piece of plastic I really enjoy.

Jade Warrior
Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by peterfrederics

5 stars Jade Warrior is an outstanding and innovative album by a group which was prepared to be really different. Why it gets such relatively mediocre ratings from the Progarchives fraternity/sorority is totally beyond me. Whilst Jade Warrior's second and third albums are really good, it is their first one which is truly stunning. What sets it apart is the blend of Japanese themes, flute solos, progressiveness and a lack of pretentiousness unusual for the period. The best way to experience Jade Warrior is to listen to the album as a whole in one sitting and not to pick and choose tracks. So follow All Music Guide's lead which describes it as a "remarkable" album and just enjoy!

Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by raggleman

4 stars First an admission.......I was lucky enough to promote Jade Warrior at the Astoria 2 many moons ago. They were kind enough to send me a copy of this album so I could use the artwork. This is the only Jade Warrior album I own so I have no idea how it compares with their earlier material. I have lived with this album for many years now and every time I put it on I'm amazed at how 'modern' sounding it is. Brilliantly produced and well layered. It has much in common with Talk Talk and bands like the Alan Parsons Project. Each track boasts multiple 'parts' and you're never left for long to get tired of a particular passage of music. That's not to say it jumps around needlessly, rather that it ebbs and flows between acoustic reverie, lush orchestrated diversions and proggy flute salad. The vocals suit the music perfectly and the whole feel of the album is of a group of musicians who are relaxed and happy with their music.......it's not forced or 'difficult'. Highly recommended.

Floating World
Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars The shift from a psychedelic rock group approach to an all-instrumental one, in which key group members Duhig and Field would act as multi-instrumentalists whilst various guest musicians threw in their contributions, did a world of good to Jade Warrior. Their instrumental works were, of course, always their best ones, and the full diversity of them is on display here. Much of the album adopts an extremely tranquil, proto-ambient mood, though there are occasional bursts of activity - Red Lotus, as has been observed, has a furious guitar riff worthy of Robert Fripp's work from the same year. Haunting, beautiful, this at last is Jade Warrior playing to their strengths and abandoning their weaknesses.

Last Autumn's Dream
Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Improving somewhat from Released, which explored the hard rock side of Jade Warrior in what I thought wasn't a very successful way, Last Autumn's Dream turns its attention to the band's more tranquil aspects, with the notable exceptions of Joanne and (especially) Demon Trucker. The band still haven't quite realised that they're just not cut out for rocking out, but at least on this album the ethereal walls of sound from the debut begin to make a return, and the distinctive, distorted wail of Tony Duhig's guitar is always a joy to hear. It doesn't quite recapture the best aspects of the debut, but it makes up a lot of the lost ground. Three stars.

Jade Warrior Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

2 stars For their second album Jade Warrior retreated to safer psychedelic territory and greatly reduced the more unusual elements of their musical style compared with their debut. The influences of musical styles from across the world are toned down greatly, and gone are the shimmering, ethereal walls of sound that were so wonderful to lose oneself in; in their place are harsh, brash, psychedelic rock pieces which when they work are decent enough songs of their type but when they don't work - as on the moronic chant Reason to Believe - they're unbearable. A very unfortunate backwards step for the group.
