Jade Warrior - Released (1971 UK Rock Prog Jazzy)

DIFÍCIL COLOCAR UM RÓTULO NO ESTILO DESTA EXCELENTE BANDA, MAS DARIA PRA DIZER QUE FICA ENTRE O PROGRESSIVO COM PITADAS SUTIS DE JAZZ!! ESTE É O SEGUNDO ALBUM LANÇADO!! FLAUTA, PERCUSSÃO E KEYBOARDS DÃO O TOM DESTE VENENO QUE RECOMENDO A TODOS QUE GOSTAM DE UM BOM PROGRESSIVO!! EM BREVE COLOCO TAMBÉM O PRIMEIRO ALBUM!! VENENASSO PURO E DE EXCELENTE EFEITO!! NÃO CONSUMA COM MODERAÇÃO!!
The music of Jade Warrior is somewhat difficult to describe. Among the influences you'll hear in various aspects of their music, rock, jazz, Latin, Japanese, African, ambient, and the kitchen sink (almost literally - there are spoons and an empty whiskey bottle in there somewhere!). It's often melodically simple, and rhythmically complex... or vice versa. This is the kind of music that everyone can hear different dimensions within and is conqueror of none.

The second album was obviously meant to show the band from a more careless, spontaneous and harder rocking side than the debut. But some parts are also slightly jazzier in sound, most because of the saxophone played by guest Dave Conners. The opener "Three-Horned Dragon King", the Tull-ish "Eyes on You", "Minnamoto's Dream" and the truly annoying single "We Have Reason to Believe" all rocks quite hard and intense. And it's no coincidence if you think the riff of "Minnamoto's Dream" is similar to "A Prenormal Day at Brighton" from the debut, as it's actually the same riff played backwards!
The laid-back side of the band is represented by the two pleasant ballads "Bride of Summer" and "Yellow Eyes".
"Barazinbar" is a 15-minute jam where the more jazz-inflected side of the album shines through. However this style works even better in the instrumental "Water Curtain Cave" - which is probably the greatest track on this album. Early 70's, jazzy and atmospheric progressive rock at its greatest.
