Solar Plexus [Evidence Music International, 1975]
Voices [Evidence Music International, 1976]
Solar Plexus [Inner City, 1978]
Earth Songs [Inner City, 1979]
Co-founded by trumpeter/composer Randy Masters and keyboardist/composer Denny Berthiaume. Featured rather complex arrangements, with Masters' compositions favoring Brazilian elements, and Berthiaume's wedding fusion and third stream concepts.
The 'classic' group represented on "Voices" and "Solar Plexus" featured a front line of Glenn Richardon on reeds/flute, Masters on trumpet, and Lin McPhillips providing female vocalese a la Ursula Dudziak. In 1979, I joined the group, my violin and viola replacing McPhillips' voice, and I can be heard on "Earth Songs". The group disbanded in 1981.
All the key players remain active, mostly in the San Francisco Area.
