Complete your Bob Downes Open Music collection. Inventive arrrangements notwithstanding, much on this album sounds forced. A few tracks could pass for accompanying music to some seventies BBC police series. The flute of Downes himself is beyond critisism: agile and expressive all the way. Still the overall sound is asthmatic and thick.

Bob Downes was a well-known "studio rat" or a "session man" that played on many 60's records, from MANFRED MANN to ANDWELLA'S DREAM (and later on EGG); and his fantastic flute was second to JETHRO TULL's Ian Anderson only. By the turn of the decade, he had decided to try his own luck and 1970 was a particularly fruitful year for him: 2 full solo album and one collaboration. Released on the legendary Vertigo swirl label, Electric City was a strange album between avant-garde jazz and hard rock.

Bob Downes is a talented t and composer and this album was one of his incursions into the world of jazz-rock, although he was equally at home playing in a free jazz context with his acoustic Open Music trio. Originally released on Polygram's Vertigo label, Electric City boasts the cream of British jazz musicians including Ian Carr, Kenny Wheeler, Harry Beckett, Chris Spedding, Ray Russell, Daryl Runswick and Harry Miller

Discography of Bob Downes Open Music.

Electric City is quite a mixed bag; a batch of vocal tunes sports the album's most overtly rock-oriented, groove-based arrangements, and vocals by Downes himself. To say that Downes' vocal gifts are not on par with his head-turning instrumental talents would be putting it kindly, but there are plenty of other sides to this outing. It's here that the sax and flute skills of Downes.

Pretty agree that the production suffer of lack of power and clarity. But some songs are amazing on this records, jazz-rock take sometimes all his sense. And there are some sax attacks that john zorn himself won't deny !
Ventelone
Another attempt to elevate rock-jazz fusion into a style of its own, without letting one of the components dominate. Inventive arrrangements notwithstanding, much on this album sounds forced. A few tracks could pass for accompanying music to some seventies BBC police series. The flute of Downes himself is beyond critisism: agile and expressive all the way. Still the overall sound is asthmatic and thick. A pity that the unexpected ballad ''In your eyes'' is clogged with brass too. Maybe Downes was overestimating himself when he took the production chair.
