3 stars Jazz Q here play jazz fusion with more influence from blues and classic jazz atmospheres than many of the other fusion acts of the era. The cover art suggests a clique of cool beatniks transposed to 1970s Prague, and that's exactly what you get here. With a large group of musicians joining the jam, the album has a rich sound which is unique and distinct to Jazz Q, and which also demonstrates that despite the Cold War they'd been keeping up with the latest developments in the genre. The epic-length The Wizard is a marvellous composition to lose oneself in and on the whole this album really puts Prague on the 1970s fusion map, though some of the experiments on here are somewhat more tentative and less successful than The Wizard and as a result the album is not as consistently strong as it might be.
Warthur | 3/5 |
