Space CaseRetrospective 2cd


Space Case were the leading jazz funk band in New Zealand in the early 80’s and still have legendary status. Their original albums are currently selling for NZ$50 and more! Faced with releasing their albums on cd Ode Records decided to give the enthusiast all three in one set, as together they tell a story. The first one, apart from causing a furore with its controversial cover at the time, laid the roots for the great group with Murray McNabb, Frank Gibson Jnr, Brian Smith and Bruce Lynch. Number Two continued the story with additions of Kim Paterson, Claudio Roditi, Andy Brown and Ron McClure. The story ends at Album Three with a solidification of the group back to its roots with Murray McNabb, Frank Gibson Jnr, Brian Smith, Kim Patterson and Andy Brown.
Even though these albums span from 1981 to 1985, the music is still as relevant today as the day it was recorded and is a testament to the calibre of musicianship involved in this ground-breaking group.
“Take Frank Gibson’s amazing 1985 solo on Dolores – have you ever heard Frank play better? Polyrhythmic, creative, true to the spirit of Tony Williams in the VSOP original. Listen to Brian Smith’s lovely lyrical soprano sax on No. 2, classic hard bop tenor on Paratutu. Listen to Kim Paterson’s lovely flugel horn in Sunburst and the late (alias) Andy Brown’s solo in Recurring Dream, all of it glued together with elegance and strong rhythmic sense.” (David Innes)
