Aera - "Turkis" {Germany} [1979] (jazz fusion)

Aera from Munich belonged to a group of bands with tight connections to Embryo (others were Missus Beastly, Munju, Real Ax Band, Snowball and some more). Several members of these band frequently exchanged between each others bands during their existence. Not surprisingly they all played a similar and typical musical style, a kind of German fusion/jazz rock with strong sax and flute. Turkis is an album of rather mellow, non-angular yet powerful and richly sounding jazz rock. Fans of European fusion will probably find it delightful [based on GEPR].

  12. I was a little bit late to react to the Munju postings properly. Since all three albums appeared at Ezhevika Fields blog yesterday, there is probably no need to post them at PNF at the moment. Anyhow, I am sincerely grateful to the anonymous uploader who shared these excellent titles with all of us.
