(45rpm) German sax legend Klaus Doldinger has presided over jazz band Passport for more than half a century, the ensemble drawing comparisons with Weather Report, but before Passport there was The Motherhood, a jazz-rock side project spearheaded by Doldinger under his sometime alias, Paul Nero. Rare debut album I Feel So Free has nine killer originals and a few unique cover tunes in the shape of The Beatles’ “Lady Madonna,” Cream’s “I Feel Free,” and the spiritual “Wade In The Water,” with Doldinger’s searing alto and soprano sax and clarinet lines aided and abetted by the pounding drums of Udo Lindenberg and Amon Duul’s Keith Forsey, along with Duul’s Lothar Meid on bass, plus Paul Vincent on furious guitar, and that’s Doldinger on keyboards too. Naturally, the overarching format is jazz, but as the material was recorded in 1969, here there are plenty of psyche leanings throughout the disc, as well as hefty doses of funky soul, while “Cleopatho” strays into languorous, smoky blues. The whole album swings with zest and fervor, its scarcity paralleled by the musical excellence, a raucous affair that is best experienced at high volume.
