  2. The first album under the name of Pierre Moerlen's Gong takes the blueprint established by Espresso II and kind of makes a hash of it. As well as singing on two poppier tracks (Aeroplane and What You Know) - both of which are best skipped over - Moerlen splits his attentions between percussion and keyboards, disrupting the interesting percussion-focused approach of the group.
  3. Jul 30,  · After the dreadful "Breakthrough" (), Pierre Moerlen's Gong mostly returned to the jazz-rock fusion sound that made them so enjoyable in the late '70s and early '80s on "Second Wind". Benoit Moerlen, who had departed after "Downwind" (), is back for this album, with stalwarts Pierre Moerlen and bassist Hansford Rowe forming the stable 4/5(16).
  4. Jan 01,  · For me, the two best Gong albums will always be Gazeuse! () and Second Wind (), but that's not to say I'm not interested in keeping in touch with anything subsequent that may be in the same ball park. My top criterion, as with any other jazz(ish) album, is that anything by Gong must be purely instrumental, and this one is/5(6).
  5. May 30,  ·»Second Wind«je v primerjavi z bolj sintetičnim predhodnikom»Breakthrough«predstavljal zaznavno izboljšanje, vendar je še vedno spadal med manj zanimive dosežke Moerlenovih Gong, še posebno, če se ga postavi ob bok Pierreovim albumom iz sedemdesetih let prejšnjega stoletja.
  6. Pierre was also in the band and played on and wrote a couple of songs for Shama", where most of the material on your release was first recorded. The band known as Pierre Moerlen's Gong only existed after Didier left - I think it was , but I had already left after touring the Shamal album, which is where your recording comes from.''
