Passport is a very good fusion band, having VERY catchy sax melodies and rhythms. The sound here is quite fresh. Most of the songs have a pleasant sophisticated pop style, which is very addictive and accessible: The "Garden of Eden" track sometimes sound a bit like the Pacific Eardrum band. Despite the change in lineup, this is still a strong album.
Kaipa have announced that they’ll release their 13th album titled Children Of The Sounds later this year. The Swedish outfit’s follow-up to 2014’s Sattyg will arrive on September 22 via InsideOut Music, with mastermind Hans Lundin joined on the record by Per Nilsson, Morgan Ågren, Jonas Reingold, Patrik Lundström and Aleena Gibson. Violinist Elin Rubinsztein will also make a guest appearance.
