"Hard-to-find but good jazz rock with a Canterbury flair at times from this Texas-based group. Lineup includes keys, guitar, bass, and drums, but various guest play woodwind and brass instruments, and there’s even a Serge modular keyboardist! A promo writeup states: “The music of Master Cylinder is a smooth blend of everything from tight ensemble composition to totally free improvisation; complex layers of polyrhythms to surging waves of pure sound; sections and bits of compostion surfacing from the flow and then redissolving".
"On the usually soulless Inner City label, Master Cylinder was anything but that. Their album has a strong melodic sense, and it seems the group must've been informed by the Canterbury groups like early Soft Machine or National Health, as well as the DC based Happy the Man. While ostensibly a jazz album, it's these rock elements that bring Master Cylinder to the next level. A very good album that time has forgot".(Thomashayes)

Excellent find! And they do sound like Canterbury. I'm notifying the Canterbury team right now for the evaluation.

Oh gosh, they were cleared over a year ago, but never added! Embarrassed

I'll ask the team's permission to add them myself right now...
