CHARLIE MARIANO – CASCADE
(Keytone LP, NL, 1974)
Another Charlie Mariano LP from the Seventies thanks to JC.
1974 was a busy year for Charlie Mariano, he appears on ten recording sessions, including two under his own name: this one with Chris Hinze and Reflections with a group of Finnish all stars.
The LP was produced by Chris Hinze and released on his own private label, Keytone.
In addition to Chris Hinze himself, the musicians were all members or close associates of the Chris Hinze Combination, namely the rhythm pair of John Lee and Gerry Brown, the keyboards of Jasper van ‘t Hof and Rob van den Broek, Philip Catherine and Michael Samson on guitar.
Van ‘t Hof, Catherine and Mariano will form Porkpie shortly after this recording, so it gives you an idea what to expect.
