One of the most mysterious of all the innovative acts signed by progressive Vertigo label in the early Seventies was jazz-rock group Catapilla. ‘Changes’ was their second album, first released in 1972. It features the powerful vocals of Anna Meek that have been variously described by critics as ‘elegant’ and even witch-like. Her voice is complemented on a series of extended performances by the saxophone playing of leader Robert Calvert (who is not to be confused with the singer and poet Robert Calvert of Hawkwind fame). Catapilla’s style veers between avant-garde jazz-fusion and experimental acid rock and there is plenty of room for experimentation on tracks like ‘Reflections’ and ‘Thank Christ For George’. Keyboard player Ralph Rawlinson supports Robert and Anna, and a strong rhythm section includes Bryan Hanson (drums) and Carl Wassard (bass). Provocative and evocative, the music of Catapilla has legs and will creep up on you!
