dbo:abstract
  • Air war eine amerikanische Fusionband, die 1968 (zunächst als Ayr) entstand und bis 1971 existierte. Das Quartett bestand aus Tom Coppola (Hammond-Orgel), Googie Coppola (Piano, Gesang), John Siegler (Bass) und Mark Rosengarden (Schlagzeug) und begleitete zunächst Herbie Mann auf internationalen Tourneen. Auf dessen Label Embryo erschien 1971 das gleichnamige Debütalbum der Band, zu dessen Produktion noch Randy Brecker, Michael Brecker, Barry Rogers, David Earle Johnson, Robert Kogel, Bob Rosengarden und Jan Hammer herangezogen wurden. Die meisten Stücke stammen von Googie Coppola. Das Album wurde mehrfach wiederveröffentlicht. Zwei der darauf enthaltenen Titel, Man Is Free und Realize, wurden 1972 in Schweden von Monica Sunnerberg gecovert. Ein im Juni und Juli 1971, teils mit John Abercrombie, aufgenommenes weiteres Album der Band wurde nicht veröffentlicht. (de)

Reviewing the 2016 re-release, juno.co.uk said: The brainchild of Googie Coppola (who you may recognise from Fire Island or cameos with Jeremy Steig) and her partner in jazz Tom Coppola, you can hear vapour trails of the pastoral, laidback folk of the late '60s with a more forthright funk energy and jazz mindset as the lovers and their bandmates dazzle us with meandering melodies and stories; from The Doors level organ frenzy of "Baby I Don't Know Where I Love" to the galloping momentum of "In Our Time" that suddenly stops dead into an almost medieval breakdown by way of ballads such as "Sister Bessie" and Afrobeat-style horn chaos like "Lipstick", this really captures an exciting time in music and, if the music is as honest as it seems, a rather exciting time in the lives of the Coppolas too...
