3 stars Refered often as Klaus Doldinger's PASSPORT,this German jazz rock group was actually named after Doldinger's eponymous album.Klaus Doldinger was an experienced saxophonist/keyboardist/arranger and in 1971 he released an album with the title ''Passport'' along with his group-mates.Soon this would be the name of his band and the album's title changed to ''Doldinger'',as PASSPORT would be officially confirmed as the name of the group.Helped by the crystalline production,the band presented a personal jazz/rock style,based mainly on hypnotic saxes,heavy use of synthesizers/sound effects and tasteful flutes.The more intense moments are not absent,based on improvisated saxes,DEEP PURPLE-like deep bass and dramatic organ work.It's hard to believe that this album was recorded so early due to the synthesizers sound and the sporadic effects that characterize the album.PASSPORT stepped forward as a very daring and unique band and ''Doldinger'' is a work for lovers of adventuruous music!3.5 stars!
