Max Groove in City People (1981) and Dream Street (1983)







Max Groove is aka Brian Hohmann. This first album from him/them is perfectly done instrumental fusion, such as we have heard so many times already on these pages, but such as we never grow tired of, somehow.  The lush and gorgeous Water Colours, so perfectly evocative of its title:





Which is reminiscent of Wally Shorts for sure.

In the 2nd album here, from 1983, we have a much lighter fusion on tap, as can only be expected from such blandly innocuous song titles like 'Sunchaser' and 'Espresso' (I always dread seeing a track called that on a fuzak record knowing it will be so uncaffeinated and weak as to make me want to throw it back in the barista's face.)

There is still some magic left in these guys though-- check out the keyboard synths that the Psychic knew before he even met us that we love so dearly, amazing how he does it:
