To Be biography
To Be band was founded in Hamburg,Germany in 1977 by Claus Robert Kruse ( keyboards). Claus has a degree in piano at The University ofor Music and Theatre in Hamburg. As gitarist and pianist he played with local bands Cavern Cats, Cops & Robbers, Wonderland and kraut-rock band A.R. & Machines (with Achim Reichel). Another band's member Peter Franken ( percussion, drums) played with A.R. & Machines in past as well. Lemmy Lembrecht ( drums, percussion) and Rolf Köhler ( percussion) played in early A.R. & Machines line-up as well ( still with Klaus Schulze as one of vocalists).Guitarist Peter Weihe was studio musician.



To Be recorded just one album with spacey jazz rock supported by two percussionists. Whenever no commercial success was received, all musicians just continued separate careers soon after release.In 1982 Claus Kruse re-united the band ( in trio format with Tissy Thiers (Bass), Lemmi Lembrecht (Drums)).Second album was recorded, and band was disbanded for more 10 years. In 1992 third album was recorded.



Claus Robert Kruse became a respectable producer and founded own record company in Hamburg (OH YES! Records), which in 2006 re-released To Be second and third albums.

Review by hdfisch
Prog Reviewer

3 stars This album was the result of a one-time project by Hamburg based musicians from Achim Reichel's (A.R. & the Machines) backing band. The music presented here can be described as some cool, spacey and laid-back rock-jazz fusion not that far away from what Gong did on their "Gazeuse" and "Expresso II" albums. Not really that much interesting for a Prog fan but a fairly good album with nice performance by two percussionists and very enjoyable for some chill-out moments. Both musicianship and recording quality are at a very high standard. Probably just a collector's item but nonetheless it might be appealing to fans of Pierre Moerlen's Gong or lovers of ethnic jazz fusion.
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Snobb & Easy Money for the last updates
