Impuls biography
Impuls was preceded by Jazz Nova, which was formed in 1971 and centered around trombone player Jindrich Dostál. They were coming from a traditional jazz grounding, as opposed to other jazz-rock bands from the eastern bloc that had settled on jazz influenced music just because it was idealistically harmless to the official party line and therefore tolerated. After some lineup changes (Michal Gera - trumpet, Pavel Kostiuk - keyb., Zdenrk Fiser - guitar, Jan Vytrhlík - bass and Jaromír Helesic - drums) the band veered toward jazz-rock influenced by the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Weather Report. First recordings appeared in 1975 on the "Jazz Workshop" compilation, in the form of covers - Herbie Hancock's Sly and Chick Corea's Crystal Silence. In 1977 they released their first and only LP. It featured Mahavishnu-influenced rhythms and also some influence from local folklore. Shortly after they broke up. Nowadays, there is a gigging lineup led by Fiser with Helesic and Kostiuk and some new guys.

Review by Mellotron Storm

4 stars This EP was released the year before their studio album hit the market. This is very short with just two tracks adding up to less than 12 minutes. We get the same lineup as we got on their studio album.

"Babi Lato" is catchy with a solid sound. The trumpet joins in playing over top. The electric piano then leads before 2 minutes then the trumpet returns. Guitar leads before 3 1/2 minutes then the trumpet kicks back in at 4 1/2 minutes. "Kdo Jinemu Jamu Kopa" is laid back to start with laid back trumpet before it kicks in with guitar. Nice. Contrasts continue. The trumpet then leads until 4 minutes in then the electric piano takes over. Great tune !

Worth 4 stars i suppose despite how brief it is. The main thing is that the music is as good or better than what's on their studio album.

4 stars This was IMPULS only studio album released in 1977. They are another band from the Czech Republic who play in the Jazz / Rock Fusion style. Their trumpet player and drummer would both play on ENERGIT's "Piknik" album released the year after this one. And the trumpet player also guested on JAZZ Q's "Elegie" record from 1976.

"Horni Konec Dolni Konec" is spacey to start then the bass and drums kick in to a funky groove. That changes when it becomes fuller. Trumpet 2 minutes in then the guitar leads. It's funky again late before turning spacey to end it. "Cervanky" is led by the guitar and trumpet early then the drums join in before a minute followed by bass. More passion after 1 1/2 minutes then it settles back 2 minutes in as the guys trade solos. "Osmikraska" has some sparse electric piano early then the bass and drums take over. Electric piano, trumpet and more join in. The guitar then starts to solo over top then it's the trumpet's turn before 3 minutes. "V Klidu A Pohode" has a relaxed sound with distant sounding trumpet. It kicks in after a minute. Great sound !

"Sextant" has to be a nod to Hancock. Electronics to open then the drums take over followed by a full sound. Nice. The drumming is fantastic. "Cumulus" has these marching styled drums which change before a minutes as the bass joins in. Trumpet plays over top 1 1/2 minutes in in a reserved manner. Love the atmosphere when it settles just before 3 minutes. This lasts for a minute. Great section. "Povidlova Hody" is status quo until it changes before 1 1/2 minutes as we get cymbals and bass then the trumpet replaces the bass, then the electric piano replaces the trumpet and so on as they keep trading solos. Love the bass late. So good !

Without question this is a very solid and well played recording.
