Pierre Moerlen's Gong is a jazz fusion outfit led by French drummer and percussionist Pierre Moerlen which is very different from the first incarnation of Gong, the psychedelic space-rock act led by Daevid Allen.
It is notable for the prominent use of mallet percussion, such as marimba, xylophone, and vibraphone featured in a rock/jazz context, making for a very distinctive and unusual sound that could have been classified as warmer and more melodic than most typical fusion could be, and is comparable to the sort of fusion-influenced output many bands on the Canterbury scene were producing at around this time.
