Label: Not On Label – UH 7313 Format: Vinyl, LP Country: Germany Released: 1981 Genre: Jazz, Rock Style: Jazz-Rock, Fusion, Prog Rock
Frighteningly scarce privately released jazz/funk/prog-fusion wig out from German outfit Syncrisis with their '81 debut release Reflections In Musical Power (amazing title!). Seems these guys only manage to notch up two releases in their career, which is a shame because the musicianship is very tight and whilst being pretty out-there in terms of their ideas and structure (see 'Reflections'), it doesn't venture into the masterbatory xones these prog-jazz-fusion LPs can easily stray into. The synths and percussion find a real nice harmony and its nicely restrained and fully instrumental (thank god). Not really my world but seemingly quite collectable, do get in touch if you know more about this one. (Vinyl & Sleeve NM, beautiful copy).
