SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Possibly most capable Czech keyboardist Marian Varga plays with another Collegium Musicum member, acoustic guitarist Pavol Hammel and possibly the best Czech jazz-rock guitarist Radim Hladik (of Blue Effect). This trio is regular project,released few albums.

Music there on this album isn't excellent jazz rock of Blue Effect or more keyboards-based prog fusion of Collegium Musicum. Trio plays quite eclectic mix of early jazz rock (with backing females vocals), Czech folklore and pop-rock. Leading sound comes from Varga's keyboards, guitars both are only supporting instruments. There are more strings quartet on support, but in all the sound is more prog folk, than fusion or symphonic.

Musicianship is great as usual from this three great musicians, and songs are well arranged. Main problem form me, that main material is in fact folk rock, and as very often, compositions are not very diverse. I like some keyboards moments, and often very professional arrangements, but album's genre itself isn't my cup of tea.

Good album for Central European prog folk lovers, but has only limited attractiveness for fans of Blue Effect or Collegium Musicum.

3 stars This second collaborative album between Pavol Hammel, Marian Varga and Radim Hladik, came out 4 years after "Zelena Posta". It seems as though Hammel had more to do with this one than Varga did, as there is even a stronger pop tint on it than on the great '72 album. One of the most important devel ... (read more)
