Moose Loose - Transition (1976)

The second album from this Norwegian band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, violin, guitars and keyboards.

Their 1974 debut album Elgen Er Los was a good album and I was happy when I found a copy of he follow up album. The band has also released a third album under a different name I hope to pick up later.

This band is a fusion band and the music is pretty intense fusion.

The best comparison is Jean Luc Ponty with some Mahavishnu Orchestra influences too. 

Trond Villa's violins and in particular the Jon Eberson's guitar solos is striking good on this album. Hakon Graf's bass is also very, very good here.

There is a lot to be enjoyed on this forty minutes long album. Lots of solos and a lot of rhythm works which will keep the listener occupied and happy for some listening sessions.

This is indeed a very good album and one of the better 1970s albums from Norway.

3.5 points
