Bass – Tony Hargreaves
Guitar, Producer – John Bellamy
Percussion – Ray Dick
Saxophone – Dave Brown
Synthesizer – Stephen Maxwell Von Braund
Australian Jazz Rock combo, involving Steve Maxwell Von Braund of Cybotron fame as a guest on Korg synthesizers.The main man for Alpha Omega appears to be guitarist John Bellamy, who's abstract, utterly jazzy plays can be heard throughout the album.In general this is more of a free-form Jazz Rock with some sparse Jazz Fusion vibes and notable synth- and bluesy-driven moves, sax and electric piano also dominate the scene, the outlandish mood all over has some certain charm, but the widely unconstructed pieces tend to bother a bit.
Steven Maxwell, most known for his group Cybotron, also plays synthesizers for this most interesting fusion group. Perhaps Cybotron's Colossus is a good reference, mixing in saxophone lead rock with electronic sequences. Alpha Omega is more rooted in jazz, however, which includes some free blow sax and shredding guitar solos. It's an odd combination. Passport's Infiniti Machine is also similar to this, though for certain more tame. Well worth hearing for the uniqueness factor.
