Gil Mellé – Mindscape

LP/CD, Blue Note, 1989

Rippling New Age-y synths meet fusion-inspired soundtrack impressionism, on this atypical (to say the least) late 80s Blue Note release. Mellé is best known for his wonderful electronic score for The Andromeda Strain in 1971 (dig that extraordinary sleeve also), and he provided music for classic 1970s US TV shows like Columbo and Kolchak the Night Stalker. He played everything here, produced the album, even painted the sleeve image. He died in 2004.
