3 stars Born out of the ashes of a band named ''Incrowd'', EKSEPTION were fronted by gifted musician Rick Van Der Linden and won the first prize at the Loosdrecht Jazz Festival to lead them to an eponymous debut filled with interpretetions of classical pieces in 1969.''Beggar Julia's time trip'' followed in 1970 with original material and a concept around a beggar,who travels through time.An essential approach to classical and jazz music,the album is characterized by the trully amazing and sensintive playing of Van Der Linden on piano,xylophone and mellotron,close to the likes of classical composers.On the other hand the classical approach is accompanied by brass instruments like trumpet,trombone and saxes to fill the album with an intense jazzy feeling.One of the few EKSEPTION albums featuring a (quite good) vocalist,''Beggar Julia's time trip'' is a very good example of classical early-70's prog rock with strong jazz doses.
