SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
5 stars Fourth full Jazz Q studio album (OK, this time under the name "Jazz Q Martina Kratochvila") is a great one. And different one from their previous works as well.

The band started some years ago, released common album with another great Czech jazz-rock band Blue Effect. So, their debut in studio was an eclectic mix of heavy guitar based jazz-rock and some free-jazz elements. Later in their own albums they changed many musicians, playing often guitar based jazz fusion, with some vocals.

This album (released under "Jazz Q Martina Kratochvila" name, what shows that this founder and keyboardist took a full control under the band's sound) is complex, mostly electric keys based sound. Yes, there still is enough space for electric guitar and even some vocals as well, but in whole main influence obviously is Herbie Hancock albums from early 70-s. Plenty of progressive compositions, a bit spacey sound, funk influence as well. In some moments you just can imagine them as European Headhunters!

From another hand, they have enough own ground under feet. Still melodic Eastern European roots are everywhere. Very interesting combination, and played with excellence!

Possibly most matured Jazz Q album, must have for each Eastern European jazz fusion researcher! Excellent album for every lover of keyboards-led progressive jazz fusion in Headhunters/Hancock's Trilogy key.

4 stars I have been going backwards through JAZZ Q's discography and this is the best and most consistant one so far. Many of the tracks here blend into on another as well.

"Slunovrat" reminds me of Herbie Hancock and it's kind of funky with prominant synths. The tempo shifts a lot and we get some good guitar late. A good song but my least favourite of the bunch. "Nadeje" opens with atmosphere and a calm as gentle guitar, a beat and violin come in. It's stiil laid back. When the violin stops the trumpet starts to lead, then the trumpet stops and melancholic synths lead. More relaxed trumpet leading before 4 1/2 minutes then it's the electric piano's turn late. Great sounding tune. "Citadela" kicks in right away and I love the drum work. It turns atmospheric. "Tanec" has some excellent sounding bass, drums and piano early on. The synths wash in then we get some incredible sounding guitar lighting it up. Electric piano then leads before the guitar returns to end it.

"Letavice" is melancholic with synths. Some laid back harmonica after 1 1/2 minutes and then before 4 minutes. "Toledo" is my favourite. This reminds me of MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA the way the guitar, keyboards and drums create fire. It settles before 1 1/2 minutes then builds. Another calm before 4 minutes then it builds again. Love the guitar and also the keys late. "Zrava Dama" like the first track has some in your face synths. This is powerful and punchy. A calm before 2 minutes as it changes with percussion and other intricate sounds. Guitar after 2 1/2 minutes then it kicks in with synths after 4 minutes as the opening section of this song is reprised. "Vestba" is the short concluding tune consisting of piano and violin.

An easy 4 stars for this one. I'm really impressed with this one.
