CD PF Pavol Hammel - vocais. Coro infantil dirigido por I. Live Ivan Belak - baixo. Jozef Farkas - guitarra. Continuo Karel Witz - guitarra principal. The group also collaborated with the known jazz-rock keyboardist Gabriel Jonas. As the name implies, this was a beat group from Brno , although no "George" could be spotted!
Obermayer had previously played with the legendary Matadors. Their first album contained sympathetic songs with harmony vocals, electric guitar, organ and decent string and brass arrangements.
Their style was highly rhythmic with a fluent interplay between electric guitar, trumpet and various keyboards. It was dedicated to free-jazz with some beat elements as well.
This is an interesting experiment, but surely not to everybody' s taste. Only "Trifid" had vocals, introducing the strong female vocalist Joan Duggan. Duggan was given much more space on Symbiosis, a more up-beat work with additional rock elements. The later Jazz Q albums were in the typical European instrumental jazz-rock tradition with similarities to several French albums of this kind but can also be compared to Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock.
This collaboration is quite good but will mostly appeal to a jazz audience. Impresie contained jazz-rock of the kind you would expect from a conservatory graduate - academic and technically competent, but also dangerously sterile.
Mahagon's first album brought together a lot of the best jazz-rock musicians from Prague. The result was an energetic fusion remarkably close to several French groups or the British Canterbury sound featuring electric violin, electric piano, electric guitar, sax and scat vocals. This is among the best of such albums from Czechoslovakia and a perfect starting point for the curious. Obermajer - guitars, vocals Otto Bezloja - bass Tony Black - drums. The Matadors rank among the most legendary bands from behind the Iron Curtain.
In their first release was the EP "Farmer John". Later on, they were also featured on Night Club 7 along with their rivals Olympic and some dreadful entertainment pop stuff. Unlike The Primitives Prague's psychedelic underground band they were able to record a complete album in Seven tracks were original compostions, the remainder were great versions of songs by John Mayall, Bob Dylan and others. The album is almost impossible to find at all nowadays, let alone a copy in good condition.
This meant the end of The Matadors. Viktor Sodoma went on to Apollobeat and Jan F. Radim Hladik, for his part, kept close to the spirit of Matadors and formed a new group.
The Special Blue Effect, who made their live debut at a Prague club in late His material is largely song-based, ranging from jazz-rock resembling the aforementioned Flamengo album to Bohemian electric folk-rock with harmonica and electric violin, vaguely similar to Bob Dylan and The Band. They also made several more albums in the eighties.
Their album Meditace was great. The other tracks ranged from Yarbirds-like sitar excursions and blues-rock highlighting the flute similar to vintage Jethro Tull to well-written pop-psychedelia in the typical late sixties tradition. He wanted to sing English lyrics, which didn't exactly please the Czech authorities. The sound of Coniunctio will puzzle the ears of many listeners, as this is considerably different to early Western attempts to combine jazz and rock at the time.
Judging by their playing techniques, these professional musicians collectively seemed to ignore any new developments in jazz since and rock was totally out of the question. The result was not a "synthesis" but two different generations of musicians playing on top of but not with each other. A self-titled and largely instrumental progressive rock album was recorded in , but not released until two years later.
