I hear you. Are you suggesting someone else do that? I'd consider it, but I don't even think many have ever *heard* of C2 let alone know the music and the where they came from.

Is Jon Hiseman's Tempest a slight hiccup in Hiseman's career of fusing blues and rock together, with lashings of jazz? I think the chronology has been:
 
UK National  Youth Jazz Orchestra
John Mayall BB
Colosseum
Tempest
Colosseum 2
Bruce/Holdsworth/Hiseman - demos but little else to show its existence
Barbara Thompson's Paraphenalia
Colosseum (revamped),
 
 then heaps of session work, e.g. Jack Bruce to Julian Lloyd Weber.
 
A 'hiccup' in the sense that Tempest, for all musicians present,  who were better known later as jazz rockers, there was an emphasis on heavy rock (admittedly played by very good musicians)?
The best eclectic music on the Web,8-11pm BST/GMT THURS.

Well done!! Clap

Colosseum is a band I plan to check. I liked what I've listened from them so far, so I will get one of their albums soon. Smile

Should add :
The United Rock & Jazz Ensemble at the end of the 70's

I have all their albums and have loved the band for many years.  Nice to see bands with this type of instrumentation were alive and recording outside of Chicago.
