Mini Jazz Klub 36: Michal Pavlíček, Jiří Hrubeš, 1983-- strongly recommended






Great choice of photos there guys, like two schoolboys apprehended in the girl's toilet?

Despite the guilty looks, this tiny little release hides 12 minutes worth of some generously magnificent progressive music complete with odd vocals and a dark riff persisting in its worldwide tritonal domination until it passes following a fade out to a most bizarre guitar composition that I admit outsmarts Heldon and Richard Pinhas by a mile on side A's composition called Tváří V Tvář:





Note that Michal is the composer here, and the producer is our well known multi-talented Michael Kocab (Elefteriadu, Olmerova, JOCR).  The other credited artist is Jiri Hrubes, whose discography you can see is less plentiful.

Prog fans might recognize Pavlicek from the famous Black Light album he made also with Kocab in 1990, which resembles this earlier release not a little, or from the prog rock band called Stromboli which is like a harder, 2-LP version of the track above.

Side b will surprise you even more, being pure electric guitar-based fusion along the lines of German Dzyan or Alcatraz on its magnificent 4 album.


So looks like this Panton Mini Jazz Klub series is turning out to have hidden a wealth of great treasures, isn't it?  Times like this I feel like it's so important to return this wonderful lost music to the attention of the world out there, little as that orb seems to care for it...
