The Far Cry


Only album by US septet Far Cry, which is a rare example of early US Jazz-Rock Fusion. The band was fronted by a unique lead singer Jere Whiting, who delivers some of the most unusual vocal performances (comparable only to Captain Beefheart excursions}, with growls, whines and you name it, but all making perfect sense in the overall scheme of things. The six instrumentalist play two guitars, saxophone, keyboards, bass and drums producing a big sound and combining Rock, Blues and Jazz into their own amalgam. Read more on Last.fm

The six instrumentalist play two guitars, saxophone, keyboards, bass and drums producing a big sound and combining Rock, Blues and Jazz into their own amalgam. Saxophonist Dick Martin is the biggest surprise and delivers some of the strangest phrases ever heard on a Rock oriented album at the time, very close to avant-garde Jazz of Ornette Coleman or Albert Ayler. Strangely enough the stuff he plays fits perfectly the overall ambience of the album. Six of the seven composition included on the album are originals by the band members and they are all very interesting. Overall this is a real forgotten gem and a blast from the past. Having it back in circulation is a real treat. Definitely worth checking out (by Jazzis).
