On The Best of Mark-Almond, the group's early explorations of Latin/jazz/rock fusion are balanced by pensive, spatially oriented ballads. The City, one of Mark-Almond's earliest hits, is still a classic of smoldering intensity. The Sausalito Bay Suite, ventures into imaginative montages of sound and emotion, while the impressionistic tunes like Tuesday In New York, and One Way Sunday, softly whisper lyrics with an innate sense of drama and a deft twist of phrase. The elements add up to a release that is a pleasure to listen to, at the same time illustrating Mark-Almond's status as one of the most innovative bands in the history of jazz-rock fusion.
Happened to catch two cuts of this album on Sirius Radio and was driven to purchase the CD.
They were great then but their own albums are a very jazz and rock blend they are very good musicians I have enjoyed their music for years.
There are some "less desirable" cuts, but overall, just plain fun for some of we "older" people to enjoy.
