How odd that the one "l" goes missing from the first to the next?
In a long line of Eastern European fusion bands such as the recent Polish VA, Impuls, Crash, etc., etc. it will be assumed we never get tired of that sound here, which so deftly mixes classical education with the fusionaut teachings of Return to Forever and Mahavishnu.
From the database:
Czechoslovak jazz combo. Formed 1968 in Prague, led by Laco Deczi. In the 1970s essentially identical to the Czechoslovak Radio Jazz Orchestra rhythm section and soloists. After a line-up change in the mid-1980s, featuring Deczi’s son Vaico Deczi on drums, and after Deczi’s immigration to New York, the group evolved to Cellula New York which is still actively performing as of 2012.
Note that Laco, described as trumpet player, bandleader, and composer, was prolific on his own as well. (I pray he won't be deported too now.)
