Czech singer Eva Olmerová with Michael Kocab, JOCR, in the early 80s







Continuing on with the Czech LPs, here's an artist who made some nice music in the early 80s, but clearly belonging to the 70s.  On the first album she lays bare her jazz credentials, sounding like an Ella doing fusion.  Here's the great Michael Kocab track called Monolog:





Btw Kocab is well known to all of you-- whether or not you realize it-- from the stunning fusion masterpiece Prazsky Vyber - Zizen.

On the later album unfortunately she takes a turn into the smooth jazz / doo-wop direction, anachronistically, though understandable for that period in the early 80s, and therefore disappoints. I didn't check if fusion master Kocab is still on board or if he is, averted his eyes and ears.

    2. Don't really know about the recordings, but it appears to be specially produced by Stanislav Titzl, I guess.
