Staying with a jazz flavour.
Here's a bit of fusion for ya.
Firstly with a fine piece of rock jazz.
Brand X utilizing Phil Collins to perform an unusual - for them - vocal for his and guitarist John Goodsall's 'Soho'.
Riff led, Goodsall displays his chops, and for a Brand X number this is very accessible.
The original B Side pairing is more familiar jazz rock territory; both instrumental, and both leaning more towards the avant-garde, importing a little oblique funk into the mix for good measure.
Unique to this recording, the two tracks are firmly steered by Percy Jones's busy, busy, bib-a-de-bob bass patter; a sound that really allowed Brand X to stand apart from the o so many fusionists who were at work around this time.
At their best Brand X were a great band - too prolific for their own good, I feel - and if you fancy a little more of this, check out Livestock, their live album from 77; that's where they really nail it.
