Spectrum Orchestrum - It's About Time (2018)

The third album from this French band.

This band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, keyboards, saxophone and guitars. 

The band has been around for around ten years. They have been gigging a lot and they also have their own Bandcamp page from where they sell their albums.

The band is rather unknown and that is for a good reason. Their music is nowhere near commercial.

The music is improvised spaced out jazz. 

There is a lot of avant-garde and zeuhl here too. 

The music is really eclectic and a bit lacking in quality. 

Parts of this album gave me some enjoyments as a Soft Machine fan. Other parts left me cold. 

This album has awoken my interest in jazz. But this album falls a bit short.
