Gunter Hampel and Jeanne Lee-Oasis 1979

Here's another great Horo record , a truly magnificent testament to the love Hampel and Lee  must have had for each other when they did this . To Me this is.another one of those records where one feels one is eavesdropping on an intimate ,private, at times sexually charged conversation ... it feels very much as though they are playing to and for each other ...Lee's scatting even sounds like love smitten baby talk  on a few tracks ..
Joyous , Wonderful Music, which doesn't deserve to languish in obscurity on  the musty shelves of 'specialist" collectors.

Thank you, Nick for this re-up!
This record is DELIGHTFUL!
It's so airy and spacy that I actually burst out laughing at several points as I was listening to it (laughter not out of ridicule but out of experiencing something marvelous & brilliant).
