Clare Fischer - Clare Fischer & EX-42 (1972)

02.'Round Midnight
03.Lennie's Pennies
04.Blues In F
05.Crystal Sunrise.

Clare Fischer - EX-42, electronic organ
Gary Foster - alto & soprano sax
Andy Simpkins - bass
Larry Bunker - drums.
Originally released in 1972 as T'DA-A-A! (Revelation 23), reissued as Clare Fischer and EX-42 (MPS 0068.246) in 1979.

According to the back cover of my MPS-copy this album was recorded in June, 1979, which is obviously an error as this is a reissue of T'DA-A-A!, released on Revelation in 1972. Whatever, "it's an excellent album, one of Fischer's elusive electric sides, and one that features him playing a Yamaha EX-42 organ, which has a very cool sound! The group's a quartet, with the great Gary Foster on alto and soprano sax, and the tracks are a mix of older jazz standards ("Soon", "Round Midnight", "Lennie's Pennies") and originals ("Blues In F" by Fischer and "Crystal Sunrise" by Tom Scott), all done in long versions with some intimate and exploratory solos."
