Garden of Eden is the last Passport Album I liked. I say that because I've never heard an album after that where I've liked so many songs. In the others I could only find one, maybe two numbers at the most that I liked. Garden of Eden was their last good album. In the vinyl version side 1 is the theme of a mixture of scientific and biblical creation with Big Bang, The Garden of Eden trilogy, and Snake. Passport paints a non stop wonderful picture of the creation of the Universe, The coming of Adam, then Eve and then their antagonist, the Snake. Of those Snake is the most outstanding piece, the haunting bass line, the steady walking drum, the rattle of the Snake's tail, the bells, and the electronic Choral background layered over Doldinger's soulful sax solos.

Klaus Doldinger's Passport. Gates of Paradise, 03:47. Good Earth Smile, 05:03. Unfortunately, the station stopped broadcasting. Perhaps, this is a temporary station problem.

Garden of Eden is an album by jazz drummer Paul Motian recorded in 2004 and released on the ECM label in 2005.

Garden of Eden is slightly better then the preceding Passport album. Just slightly, very slightly. The focus is still on easy-listening jazz, new-age and mainstream jazz-pop. I'm not an expert in those genres but I'd say the album would even score rather low compared to others. With Big Bang the band combines their pop tendencies with a bit of soft-rocking excitement. Hardly compelling but the fretless bass adds an interesting viewpoint. This album was my last hope of finding any further interesting music from Passport, so I've never even thought of trying anything from their 80s output. The album is close to a total disaster and no match for the more inspired music of their early career.
