Unlike every GONG album of the past including "Shamal," GAZEUSE! is a completely instrumental album that displays Morelon's firm control of jazz-fusion workouts on six tracks. While some stalwart band members such as Didier Malherbe (sax, flute) and Mireille Bauer (vibes, marimba, glockenspiel, toms) were still on board no matter what changes were in line, GAZEUSE! pretty much finds a whole new cast of musicians that gives this album a completely different sound than anything put out under the GONG moniker that preceded it.

Listen free to Gong – Gazeuse! (Expresso, Night Illusion and more). Only Didier Malherbe and Pierre Moerlen remained for this album from the classic Trilogy line-up, although former Magma bassist, Francis Moze rejoins after playing on 'Flying Teapot'. The album is notable for the guitar playing of Allan Holdsworth as well as cementing the band's style in jazz fusion. This is the first Gong album not to feature vocals.
