Join In - Kentalope Island (1974 German Prog Rock Jazz)

ESSE VENENO É MAIS UMA REEDIÇÃO DO VENENOSO SELO "GARDEN OF DELIGHTS"!! BANDA ALEMÃ FORMADA EM 1968 QUE FAZIA UM PROG JAZZ ROCK REGADO A SAX MUITO LEGAL!! A BANDA NO INÍCIO TOCAVA BLUES ROCK, DEPOIS VIRIA A TOCAR HARD ROCK E MAIS TARDE MUDARIA DEFINITIVAMENTE PARA O PROG JAZZ ROCK GRAVANDO ENTÃO ESSE SEU ÚNICO E ÓTIMO ALBUM QUE NA VERDADE FICOU UMA FUZZION, ONDE KISTURARAM JAZZ COM SOFT ROCK PROGRESSIVO COM ALGUMAS JAMMINGS E UM TRABALHO INSTRUMENTAL MUITO BACANA MESMO!! VENENO ALEMÃO ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO!!
They were founded in 1968 and changed their style of music quite often. They began with playing blues-rock, then changed to playing hard rock and ended up by playing jazz-rock in the seventies, each style containing progressive elements. Their only LP "Kentalope Island" was released in 1974 (Menga 3302).

Associates of Think, whose Ricky Ramor and Frank Voigt were amongst the many that passed through their ranks, Join In recorded their album at the same studio, with Eroc as engineer.KENTALOPE ISLAND is a pleasant record, with some slight Think references, but much more fusion, mixing jazzy musics with soft rock and prog elements typical of the era, comparable to many others: Guru Guru circa GLOBETROTTER, Cry Freedom, or Dutch acts like Alquin or Solution. For those that like such things, it's a good example of the genre, and all the better on the CD which includes some much stronger (if of not brilliant recording quality) material, where they live up to the band name much more, with some tasty jamming instrumental work.
