Quite unexpected and we can say, absolutely amazing album of the little-known Canadian band from Toronto "Horn”. 
This is a very interesting version of the prog-rock, based on jazz intonations, twilight sounding of the pipe, some influences of the west-coast and unexpected tempo drops. 
The general mood is jazz, there are a lot of electric pianos. The guys sing both in English and in French, and in the timbre of the vocalist’s voice even some intonations are visible, reminiscent of Christiane Robichaud from the group Contraction. The 9-minute epic is perfect, like the entire disc. A couple of things, maybe, hints at the term “pop-rock”, but quite unexpectedly develops in various unusual directions. Extremely interesting disk, I recommend it to everyone. I would like to see your reviews on the album on my wall. Unfortunately I do not have much information about this group, please, who owns any information - write, I will be very grateful. Honestly, I’m surprised that such a treasure has not been reissued to CD yet, if not in Canada or the States, then at least in South Korea or Japan…..~


Unknown band from Toronto, a septet actually, featuring drummer Bill Bryans and trumpeter Wayne Jackson among others.Their only album is a nice example of Canterbury-alike Fusion cum Psychedelic Pop, so there are a few musical contradictions when listening this one.Soft arrangements with jazzy bass, solid drumming, commercial trumpet plays, smooth keyboards and electric guitars.When on fire, the band offers solid interplays and rhythm changes with a slight Crimson-ian aura and good Canterbury-flavored melodies.On their lighter moves they sound rather dull and dated, like listening to a different group.Bryans later played with the New Wave groups The Government and The Parachute Club…by….apps79 …~


Largely forgotten, even among the crate-diggers, Horn was a Toronto jazz/rock outfit that seems to have fallen off the musical map even though the band contained drummer Bill Bryans (M.G. and the Escorts, the Government, the Parachute Club) and trumpeter Wayne Jackson (Downchild Blues Band). What’s more, it appears that TV mogul Moses Znaimer had his fingers in this pie, right about the same time that he was launching Citytv, and tarting up the late-night Toronto airwaves with those soft-core Baby Blue Movies. 

The band’s only release, On the People’s Side melds socially conscious lyrics with the then cutting-edge sounds of jazz fusion - that means plenty of Rhodes pianos, vibraphones and trumpet. And though lyrically the record has aged poorly, with its hoary “brothers and sisters” references, the galloping Zappa-esque signatures and Bitches Brew-era riffs raise the stakes somewhat. The lead-off ‘Things in Themselves’ and the spry 'Vibrations (vee-bra-syohn)’ are cases in point, straddling both prog and jazz, and thus infinitely more interesting than the pedestrian fare of the title track or the seventies rock cliches of 'Free All My Brothers’..Michael Panontin.~
