Osmosis - Osmosis (1970 us, solid heavy experimental jazz prog rock)



US psychedelic progressive rock with jazz influences feat. Charlie Mariano. Originally released on RCA this 1970 progressive Jazz rock outfit created a full blown rock based performance with two drummers. The wall of sound was amazing with alto and soprano saxophones- courtesy of the great Charlie Mariano, whose career since 1944 has included bebop with Shelly Manne and electronic fusion with Eberhard Weber’s Colours - wailing over the wall of sound. The mood ranges from spacey and saxy to (as evidenced on title track) full-on heavy stoner acid doom.
