Embryo  - Rocksession download album

EMBRYO (not to be confused with Italian and Swedish death metal bands of the same name) are a musical collective from Munich who, lead by former R&B and jazz organist Christian Burchard, boast the participation of some 400+ musicians since their beginnings in 1970. Over the years, the band went from classic space rock to jazz fusion.

Excellent jazzy Krautrock. Rock session is another album consisting of material they recorded during sessions between 1971 and 1972. Actually the band was planning to release this stuff already in 1972. But their record company UA was not pleased by it, so they recorded first Father, Son & Holy Ghosts and the songs from these sessions have been used for this album here and Steig aus.

The difference between Embryo and their English-speaking rivals is that Embryo are content to take their time, even compared with acts such as King Crimson, getting where they're going, and don't mind going in long, extended detours into the funkier side of jazz. Entrances" - which, despite its title, is the second track on the album - is worth the price of admission by itself for its seeming digressions, which all pull together around Jorg Evers' amazing bass work.

Embryo 1973 Rocksession. The line-up is almost identical on these two albums, with the difference that Sigi Schwab was replacing Roman Bunka on guitar.
