OSU showcases pianist Ron Wilson's compositions, rhythmic soulful Fender Rhodes and vocals in unison with Pelzer & Steve Houben (reeds), Janot Buchem (electric bass) and Pelzer's daughter Micheline on drums. Some of you may be familiar with OSU via the Jazz Bizniz 2 LP on Counterpoint which featured the track Sunshine Star.
A rare example of Jacques PELZER's incursion into fusion jazz, and also one of the first appearances on record of saxophone/flute player Steve HOUBEN. For this live recording recorded in the early seventies, the compositions were written by US pianist and vocalist Ron WILSON.
