Classic Czech fusion – one of the greatest albums of the borderline of jazz and rock. Eight tracks full of surprising arrangements and brilliant solos.
A second CD with additional material: recordings from both “Jazzrocková Dílna”compilations, unreleased radio session from 1976 (with a big band) and a soundtrack from the movie “Hřiště”. All with new mastering.
An extensive booklet with an essay about the record, rare photos and press cuttings.
An outstanding and timeless album. One of the most important records in the history of the Czech rock and jazz, with surprising twists and incredibly diverse sounds, released in a refreshed and (much) enlarged form.
“Elegie” is the first proper fusion album by Jazz Q. Martin Kratochvil, who a moment later commenced studies in Berklee, prepared eight tracks which are a phenomenal, original synthesis of the best practices of the American jazz-rock read with a Slavic temperament. From Mahavishnu-oriented guitar harmonies and hot rhythms straight from the Return to Forever records one can see the emergence of a coherent, captivating entirety shimmering with all colors of the rainbow – the variety of arrangements surprises with the use of synthesizers, violins, trumpets and… beer bottles! The material known from the original LP (never before available on a separate CD) is accompanied by a second CD with additional recordings from the period during which the album was being created. Apart from the studio and live recordings from “Jazzrocková Dílna” compilations, one can find here an unreleased session with a radio jazz orchestra (Jazzový orchestr Československého rozhlas) and an amazing soundtrack from the movie “Hřiště”.
All remastering was done in the Budíkov Studio and supervised by Martin Kratochvil. The booklet also contains an extensive essay about the record based on a new interview with the artist, numerous photographs and press cuttings from the period. “Elegie” is the first album in a series of comprehensive, two-record editions of the entire back-catalog of classic Jazz Q releases from the 70s and 80s.
