Robert Wood

01 The Sun, Rain And Good Weather 9:40
02 The Hanged Man, To Lose The Day 8:30
03 The High Priestess, Vibrana 26:00

Alto Saxophone, Flute – Steve Potts
Bass – Kent Carter
Drums – Ron Pittner
Vibraphone – Robert Wood

Recorded in Paris, June 24 1971.

English vibraphone player, singer and producer. Eclectic style from jazz to psychedelic rock and post-progressive. Known for playing Premier vibraphones, and a customised Deagan ElectraVibe through a variety of effect pedals. His singular vocal style reminiscent of Morrison but also Kevin Ayers. Generally associated with Gong, Canterbury and Hawkwind. Played in the groups Vibrarock, Lard Free and Celestrial Communication Orchestra.

One of the rarest session by ROBERT WOOD , first on collectible label EDICI , secondly with great jazzmen as STEVE POTTS soprano KENT CARTER cello bass RON PITTNER drums , the session is not sounding as most of the ROBERT WOOD record ( i mean mostly fuzz jazz funk or acid jazz ) , here the session is more sounding VANT GARD / SPIRIT JAZZ due ot the grreat backing musicians
