Etienne Cap And His Orchestra - Flight Of Fancy (ISST 136)


























This rare album by trumpetist Etienne Cap and his Orchestra was recorded on Intersound label (70s).
It contains some jazz funk tracks as the damn groovy "Take a Taxi" and the jazz-funker "Pass The Pepper" that can be found on now out-of-print french jazz funk compilations Funk De Luxe and Opération Héritage.
The lp also contains some easy bossa mid-tempo tunes but also some more cheesy compositions among them.

Musicians are :
Etienne Cap: trumpet/fluegelohrn/arrangement/production - Pepe Solera: tenor/soprano/alto saxophone, harmonica, flute - Thomas Strasser: electric and acoustic guitars, synthetizers - Eric Stevens: electric and acoustic bass - Ladia Basé: piano, fender rhodes, synthetizer - Alan Waterson: drums, percussion, syndrums - Freddie Santiago: percussion, Christian Finck: leader of the string ensemble

Here are two previews.
