EMBRYO Rocksession SPV/Brain Revisted (2008)


Embryo were a German progressive fusion band, and this album was originally released on the Brain label in 1972. It is probably the band's most universally encompassing album, for alongside large slabs of prog rock, jazz, soul and r'n'b, is a large influence of world music.

Opener "A Place To Go" nods at African rhythms, although the music played over that comes across as a bit of a mess. The lengthy "Entrances" (15 minutes) is more cohesive, taking the progressive fusion angle on the Afro/R'n'b War were doing around the same time.

"Warm Canto" is more of a sweeping landscape, mixing their world music with a 60s organ sound and a "Moonchild" nod.

Four instrumental tracks that give you more atmosphere and rhythm than melody. Definitely one for the experimentalist.
