The Laser's Edge is pleased to release, for the first time on CD, the first studio album by the legendary Danish progressive jazz-rock band Secret Oyster. 'Secret Oyster' was originally released in 1973 on CBS Records in Denmark. The album was also rele
The other players on this debut was the very fine drummer Bo Thrige, also from B.R.I., who unfortunately had some serious drugproblems that caused him to quit soon afterwards, the sublime guitarist Claus Bohling, the jazzpianist Kenneth Knudsen who now switched to electronic keyboards with stunning results. And last but not least Mads Vinding on bass, a busy session player, soon to leave the band due to other commitments, and for years considered one of the best Jazzbassplayers in DK..
The music is inventive, psychedelic and highly personal. The rythmsection of Thrige and Vinding really gels, Bohling and Knudsen play one inspired solo after the other, and in the background and all over in fact, the discreet and lyrical sax of Vogel, a musician who's still active in a variety of contexts, recently the blissful "Meetings", where he plays together with Indian violonvirtuos L. Subramaniam (available from amazon.co.uk).
Visionary electric music of the highest calliber.
