Boomkat Product Review:
Buried Treasure pull John Baker's electro-jazz radiophonics into focus with a sterling selection of his cues and incidentals for Mafia drama series, 'Vendetta', circa 1966-68.
Compiled by Alan Gubby, who also selected two volumes of 'The John Baker Tapes' for Trunk Records back in 2008, it includes a few choice bits of material from those editions re-mastered along with stacks of unreleased gems framing Baker as the Radiophonic Workshop's in-house cool guy, equally adept at the tape-splicing concrète stuff as much as swinging grooves - and at best when he marries the two.
There are 26 pieces total, ranging from flighty flutes to a mental electronic mix of the Barnacle Bill theme, and, most notably, a wealth of abstract electro-jazz bombs that kinda preconfigure Pekka Airaksinen's later exploits, whilst mirroring elements of Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza and sounding sorta like haywire sections from a Sun Ra gathering.
