CD Reviews

Great New Sound in the 70's
Richard W. Abrams | Middle of Nowhere, OK USA | 10/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Passport's Infinity Machine on Atco records, is a must have addition to any serious music collector's library. The opening song is worth the price of the CD alone. Fortunately, there are several other great selections. I found the album very enjoyable considering my diet at the time had contained large portions of Chic Corea, Return To Forever, Nektar, pre Phil Collins Genesis along with a background in Yes, ELP, Pink Floyd, Earth, Wind & Fire and old school Dave Brubeck jazz.... Passport is a refreshing change of pace. While not quite jazz and not quite rock, I didn't know how to classify it when I first heard the release back in 1976. It would become what was called jazz/rock fusion but even that title didn't seem quite right. Even now, I could hear Dave Koz or Jim Brickman sitting in with the group and feeling quite at home. There are some undertones of what would become "New Age" and at least a parting tribute to the 70's funk sound. A great album worth five stars as it shows just how diverse the group could be. And as a DJ, it came along as Disco was driving me nuts so this was an exceptional breath of fresh air! Just how danceable it is, I'm not sure but it is one to tap your toes to with melodies to reflect upon."
A must have Passport album
Steven F. Grimm | Englewood, Colorado United States | 01/12/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While this album overall is not Passport's best, the first rack Ju-Ju Man is certainly the best song they have ever done. This song is a mixture of African rythms, funk and progressive concepts. The 15 minute song is engaging from beginning to end and the solos are top notch. The second song Morning Sun starts slowly and just when you think you will fall asleep, the tempo changes and Klaus Doldinger's sax work demonstrates why there will never be another sax player to match his talent.The rest of the album is marginal, but is still better than any fusion being done today."
The most danceable Passport album
Sarah4Now | Notlob, Flying Riscu | 01/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard this album in October, 1981. It was on Atco records. The first song on the album is the 10 minute "Ju Ju Man", which is a catchy song which could either be disco or jazz with the perfect mix of Kristian Schultze's keyboards and Klaus Doldinger's loud and smooth sax. My favourite tune on the album is "Morning Sun", which begins with a haunting blend of soft saxophone and a piano lick which sounds very much like Vince Guaraldi; The song then picks up it's tempo and sounds very much like a true Passport song. Track number five is called "Ostinato", which has an interesting sci-fi feel to it. If you want some good jazz to either dance, or relax to, I can't think of a better choice than "Infinity Machine" right now."
