ENO: HERE COME THE WARM JETS
Produced by Eno
Eno just couldn't stomach the dominance of Bryan Ferry in Roxy Music so he split the group to pursue his own musical ideas. So far he has released an album with Robert Fripp of King Crimson and Here Come The Warm Jets. Both albums are available only as imports.
Jets highlights Eno's writing talents - a smooth, flowing style with a touch of the bizarre that will tickle your earbuds. As one song flows into the next, you find yourself yourself being mesmerized by the sheer force and beauty of the music. Standout tunes on the album are: the first three cuts on side one and Here Come The Warm Jets. A "jolly good show" goes to Fripp, Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera, Chris Spedding, Busta Cherry Jones, and Paul Thompson for their assistance on the album.
A collapsed lung has slowed Eno in his musical pursuits of late (along with an interest in being a gigolo) but hopefully we'll hear a lot more from him in future.
