Music today was the deluxe edition of Gong’s Shamal (1976), produced by Nick Mason, it is actually Pierre Moerlen’s Gong and after Gazeuse! (1976) and Expresso II (1978), future albums with Moerlen used his name to distinguish which version of Gong it was. These more jazzy albums were always so warm and musical (Moerlen was the drummer), a varied lineup of dedicated organic talented musicians made an exploratory journey into grooves and jams, mixed with technical skill and mostly instrumental songs. Sadly Moerlen died suddenly at 52 of natural causes..? Still, great music, if you like this kind of thing.
