I was reading about the late Neil Ardley's 1976 Jazz/Fusion album "Kaleidoscope of Rainbows" the other day and saw it had been re-issued at some point.  Can any tell me what this album is like?  I know it isn't prog as such, but I know a lot of you people cross over into Jazz/Fusion.

This album includes a great amount of the 1970s jazz brass players and other musicians:

Neil Ardley: director, synthesiser Bob Bertles: alto, soprano, flute Paul Buckmaster: acoustic, electric cello Ian Carr: trumpet, flugelhorn Geoff Castle: electric piano, synthesiser Tony Coe: tenor, clarinet, bass clarinet Dave Macrae: electric piano, synthesiser Roger Sellers: drums Ken Shaw: guitar Brian Smith: tenor, soprano, flute, alto flute Roger Sutton: bass guitar, electric bass Barbara Thompson: alto, soprano, flute Trevor Tomkins: percussion, vibraphone

I've read that way back in the early 1960s, the following jazz players were part of the band:
Dave Gelly, Ian Carr, Dick Heckstall Smith, Tony Reeves, Jack Bruce, Norma Winstone, Michael Garrick, Paul Rutherford, Trevor Watts, Art Theman, Harry Beckett and Henry Lowther.

Any thoughts on this album would be appreciated, as well as the two preceding albums also.
