I need more info on this one. An expensive import.

 Where's Dick? He's the main man when it comes to jazz rock fusion.

Embryo's first six albumls were absolutely great jazz-rock/fusion with just enough ethnic influences to make them stand out from the rest of the JR/F

Embryo are a top band, else artists like Charlie Mariano or Mel Waldron, both top-notch jazz musicians, wouldn't have played with them repeatedly. It was never their aim to play mere jazz-rock though, and they are definitely in the wrong department there and should be moved. Calling Embryo's music "jazz-rock" is way off the mark.
And you are all definitely NOT Embryo experts, else you would consider "Embryo's Reise" their best work.

Been listening a lot to Embryo in my studio lately. I think their two first jazzy psychrock albums are among the best the best in its genre. I only got their first six first + Embryo's Reise, and think Father, Son.. is a little weaker than the rest.

Rocksession is a very fine, even great jazzfusion album, but one of the least uniquesounding of the ones I got. Reise is probably my overall favorite, and  Road to Asia and Farid are two of the most successful fusions of eh... jazzrock and middle-eastern  music I know of.

Christian Burchard's also one of my favorite percussionists.

Got a Roman Bunka solo Mein Kopf ist ein Schlafendes Auto. You can really hear that the 80's have started, mostly in a good way. Great fun!

And the Bunka/Burchard Kenneth Wells 73-74 project Sadja (never officially released). Eight great improvisations. All short and thight. First track's a real floorfiller.


Sadja.
Over land and under ashes
In the sunlight, see - it flashes
Find a fly and eat his eye
But don't believe in me
Don't believe in me
Don't believe in me

The album title actually is "Dein Kopf ist ein Schlafendes Auto". It is one of my very favourite albums; the solo he does in "Heartbeats" is simply fantastic. Bunka is a great guitar player; his name should be known a lot better.

Reise is not really reflecting their better period I would say.... Which is definitely their ethnic jazz-rock period of Steig Haus, We Keep On etc.....(ie: 72 until 76)
 
The Reise album came after trips all over the mid east and Himalaya, released in 79. It's excellent (the only one I would recommend past Bad Heads
 
 
 
 
BTW: I'm listening at For Eva right now.... Mal Waldren , Burchard, Meid and more. >>> standard jazz ala Lionel Hampton.....

Listening to their second Embryo's Rache. Can't argue for it as their best or most essential, but every track its a pure joyous pleasure. Reminds me of Out of Focus two first. Same (naive & revolutionary) political flutedriven jazzy prog. Catchier though.
