John Klemmer - Waterfalls (1972)

Bought this LP based on cover art alone (this isn't my rip, mind you) and was not disappointed. Some tasty, psych-tinged post-bop led by saxophonist John Klemmer. Waterfalls is a live recording, but the sound is studio-quality. Really feelin' the echoplex on the sax, as well as the electric piano, which helps to make for a generally loose, mellow vibe.

Track listing:
1. Prelude I
2. Waterfall I
3. Utopia - Man's Dream
4. There's Some Light Ahead
5. Centrifugal Force
6. Prelude II
7. Waterfall II

  2. Thanks for the John Klemmer. Sounds just as good as it did all those years ago.

  3. Hi Spirit. You have a really tasteful, varied blog-it's quite exceptional!This LP was certainly from back when JK was amazingly trippy psych/jazzy. Long before the sellout years. I was fortunate enough to see Klemmer back in '72 with his full array of echoplex and other noise-making gizmos/goodies. Coolest parts were where he played some swirling echoplexed flute on an array of speakers throughout the club, audible both on stage and in the viewing balcony. Was a very nice soul and very appreciative towards the rather meager crowd.yeah, those were the days. (On a side note, can you please let dummy me know, from what movie your banner picture comes from? Thanks.

    1. Oh yeah. It's from Mulholland Drive, my all-time favorite!

  4. Thx! I love the sound of J.Klemmer.
