CATAPILLA - Catapilla (1971 UK Prog Rock Jazzy)


BOA BANDA INGLESA DE ROCK PROGRESSIVO COM LONGAS SUITES EXPERIMENTAIS JAZISTICAS, PITADAS SUTIS DA PSICODELIA E DOMINADAS PELO SAX DE ROBERT CALVERT, QUE NÃO É O MESMO DA HAWKWIND, ANTES QUE ALGUÉM PERGUNTE!! A BANDA LANÇOU DOIS ALBUNS!! VENENO INGLES RECOMENDADO PRA QUEM GOSTA DA ÉPOCA EM QUE O PROGRESSIVO ERA DOMINADO PELO SAX E SEM TRAÇOS SINFÔNICOS!! 

Catapilla were an English band from the early 70′s who released two interesting albums of experimental jazz rock, without symphonic traces as in other bands of the moment such as Affinity, Cressida or Spring. The band had a line-up of six to seven people performing on saxophones, keyboards, bass, guitar, vocals, bass, and drums. The album opens with the 15-minute “Naked Death”. It features heavy sax-work, powerful vocal-parts with the aggressive, tormented female vocals of Anna Meek, and a long jam in the middle. What really gave Catapilla their distinctive stamp were probably the vocals of Meek and the atmospheric sax-playing. The highlight on the album is of course the 24-minute “Embryonic Fusion”. An intense blowouts of energetic, saxophone-driven early 70′s jazz-influenced progressive rock. It features great jamming and some structured and strong riffs too. A good album for anyone who likes saxophone-dominated progressive rock. (Review from vintageprog.com - Progarchives.com)
