Ambiance

Ambiance - Ebun DaMon DMRS-365 (1979)

Ambiance was a little known jazz fusion group out of Los Angeles who recorded on the small independent DaMon label. Their style incorporates Brazilian and Latin flavours with a righteous and soulful afrocentric jazz edge. Members include Daoud (Alto Sax, lute, Shekere, Flexitone, Agogo, Soprano Sax, etc..), Bob Selvin (Keyboards), Peter Lainson (Guitar, Tambourine), Paul Olguin (Bass), John Delatore (Drums), Sarah Flynn (Vocals) and Elisa Jones (Vocals).

I was prompted to remember this LP after seeing the compilation shared over at http://ileoxumare.blogspot.com - I think you'll agree this album is as strong in depth as that compilation - a solid listen right through without one weak track. A great record and one that deserves more than to languish in obscurity...

1) Bossa Monife
2) After June
3) Camouflage
4) O.F.C.
5) Ebun
6) Turnaround
7) Last Tango

This made my day! I provided some info about Drift Up to Space over at
ileoxumare. I heard that lp almost 30 years ago (yikes) and never thought I'd ever see another Ambience album again!


If any others turn up:

Into a new journey
Gida-gida/tight & tidy
Drift Up to Space

... I'd love to hear them! I really love the sound of this group. Thanks again!

Hi Quimsy, thank you for your music. I posted a (I think..) beautiful set of mixed classic brazilian tracks. I'll be happy if you all will listen to it. Please visit http://thesunrecipe.blogspot.com/

IT has been one of the best Jazz fusions, actually I haven't heard something similar in these days, I'd like to get a duo like this one.

Amazing, the link still works!
I had overlooked this album when it was posted. It's Katonah's post that reminded me I had seen Ambiance somehere before.
Thanks Quimsy.
