Editorial Reviews

One could suggest that the names Klaus Doldinger & Passport could be synonymous, for they really are one and the same. The driving force behind the group Passport, for almost four decades now has been Klaus Doldinger. We now add 8 more titles to our already extensive Passport catalog. All of these titles are making their U.S. CD debuts, being only available as high price import CDs if you can find them.

1. Abracadabra
2. The Connexion
3. Yellow Dream
4. Proclamation
5. Hand Made
6. Puzzle
7. The Quiet Man

The history books have been a little unkind to Klaus Doldinger's band. Many jazz books have ignored the German group for any of three reasons: a. the band wasn't as monstrously successful as some, b. most jazz histories are written from an American perspective and c. the band could be dismissed as too rock-oriented for inclusion in jazz literature. Unfortunately the band could also be labelled as too jazzy for the rock books. Perhaps German music histories give them better coverage.
All I know about them is that Passport were one of the best bands I never saw in concert. In the absence of the now-deleted 'Second Passport', this is the earliest recording of the band you can buy. The group were still at a formative stage -- the next album, 'Cross Collateral', was the culmination of Doldinger's pure fusion ambitions. 'Infinity Machine' saw the group head in funky, extreme hi-fi directions; then came 'Iguacu', the Latin-influenced pre-cursor to perhaps the group's most beautiful recording 'Ataraxia', or 'Sky Blue' as it was originally known in the US.
Passport always looked across the Atlantic for their inspiration, but the band's sound is not a million miles away from several of Jan Garbarek's recent albums. They just pre-date Garbarek by 10 to 25 years!
Track #1, 'Abracadabra', is a standard fusion workout. Next comes 'The Connexion', which sounds like the soundtrack to a 70s TV detective serial. 'Yellow Dream' starts with a wistful New Age soundscape which alternates with a gritty rock riff. The keyboard work on 'Proclamation' is a mixture of Arthur Brown's 'Galactic Zoo Dossier' and Camel's 'Snow Goose' -- sorry, the first is a very obscure reference.

Passport's Handmade is one of those early Jazz/Fusion recordings that people are still listening to and talking about today. Intense and powerful in it's sound. This recording was never released in the U.S and is part of one of the most credible bands in Jazz/fusion. Passport has a number of these wild one of a kind sounding recordings from 1971 to 75. In order of release: Doldinger, Second Passport, Handmade, Looking Thru, Doldinger Jubilee Concert (live), Cross Colateral, Doldinger Jubilee '75 (live). On Handmade the tune "Yellow Dream" is great. A live version of this tune appears on a compilation CD called "Passport Control" and is a fine example of Passport's songs from those years. If you like Passport's "Cross Colateral" This one will be no diapointment! These early Passport releases are the ones that put Passport on the map. Really great stuff!

Please be advised this is not a critique of the album itself, but people must know what a terrible job the Wounded Bird people have done with this great recording . I read a review on Amazon on one of the Passport albums I can't recall wich one but the reviewer went on and on how bad the sound quality was . Guess what ? He's right on ! Passport (to steal a line from the Maestro) IS ONE OF THE GREATEST BANDS YOU NEVER HEARD !Buy all their records especially the albums from the seventies but DO NOT buy the Wounded Bird cd's . I recently bought Collateral , Infinity, Looking thru , on Amazon , I believe they were German imports Atlantic I believe they sound great and were not that expensive .

'Hand Made' is definately a key transitional album for Passport. Not only did it usher in their "green and purple alien lanscape" era of cover art (Passport album covers are always among my very favorites in any era) but a pronounced change in their music. The bands first two albums,especially Passport showcased a band on more the heavy rocky side of fusion. On this album Curt Cress has been seriously studying the JB's apparently because it's definately had a huge influence on the sound. What is making the bands sound really unique on this album is that they've somehow managed to channel that brittle and efficiant Germanic musical sensability into their type of funk. I don't think they meant to do that but it just came through and the results are extremely compelling. "Abracadabra" is the most obviously jazz/rock kind of song on the album as the drumming and the fender rhodes build up this tension in the effort to make a great deal of noise. Still that repetative funk spareness is in the production too. On "The Connection" and "Yellow Dream" Klaus himself is adding these gentley atonal sax flavors and the end result is close to....I suppose some Eastern European variation of Miles Davis's On the Corner. I use that term because this music is far more rigid and tight rhythmically and doesn't possess the kind of complex afrocentric percussion Miles was getting in his music of the period. It is on "Proclamation" that the Passport sound that more fully developed on albums such as ...Read more ›
