3 stars Jonathan is an obscure band from Germany with a meteoric career who lasted not even 2 years. They released a single album in 1978 selftitled issued by Bellaphon label. The band has only two musicians Helmut Grab responsable for Minimoog and all the various keyboards and electronics and Peter Garattoni the drumer. Well, what we have here is a combination of progresive electronic passages not far from Tangerine Dream with jazzy elements and some space prog aswell, the result is ok but it sounds little date it to my ears, and above all this album came to late when prog was in decline or better said was absorbed by other genres emerget in late '70's. For ex Funky's Visit is a good jazzy funk space prog with nice passages, Moved Earth is a spce prog quite nice and ending track Melotary is another worthy one, the rest are no more then ok. 7 pieces garace the album, practicaly not one is particular bad, but is not quite intresting aswell, is a tripy jazz/space electronic album that gone into oblivion. Little is known about this band and what musicians done after disbanding soon after the release in 1979. Good cover art
