Let me introduce you a great Polish jazz-rock act. They were considered by many as the best jazz-rock ensemble behind the Iron Curtain:



LABORATORIUM



Discography:

1972 - BIAŁY KRUK CZARNEGO KRĄŻKA (a compilation, only side A of the LP was dedicated to Laboratorium)
1976 - MODERN PENTATHLON
1977 - AQUARIUM LIVE (live)
1977 - DIVER
1979 - QUASIMODO
1980 - NOGERO
1982 - THE BLUE LIGHT PILOT (live)
1984 - No. 8
1986 - ANATOMY LESSON
2006 - Anthology 1971-1988. Nagrania wszystkie (no… prawie wszystkie) - 10CD BOX

I've bought the anthology. Highly recommended! It's a limited edition to 1000 copies (my copy has the number 274):

To the Jazz-Rock Team: I really believe they should be here. I can provide you with all the necessary information and samples.

just to boost its introduction to the PA database, here is a description of this band in the gibraltar encyclopedia of progressive rock :
 
Laboratorium [Poland]

Live: On the Blue Light Pilot (82), No. 8 (84)

Polish instrumental progressive jazz-rock band, some albums are more jazz oriented, others lean to a fusion type sound with more variety of styles. The Blue Light Pilot is a live one, one of their very best.

The Laboratorium I know of is a Polish fusion band from the '70s whose charcteristic is/was an instrumental singer; that is he doesn't sing any words but plays with his voice. Despite the original approach there is something missing, as often is the case with jazz-rock and me.

"Magma was the very first gothic rock band" (Didier Lockwood)

Well I'm listening to the first sample! 20 minutes long! And it starts off psychedelia/jazz for the first few minutes. Seems progressive to me.

    I think they would be a great addition to the site. It has some good prog elements, according to me. I'll have another listen soon.
