Ardent Desire of Thilo Von Westernhagen from 1980

More from Thilo now.  Amazingly this record features the incomparable Joachim Kühn (on tracks A2 and B4, which he composed) and Jan Akkerman (on track B4 as well).  The influence of Kühn, who I described earlier on solo piano as like a cascade of random notes, is apparent on A2, almost unrecognizable compared to the genius who did "Cinemascope," my favourite fusion record.

Overall, this is a very meandering record, lacking the punch and variety of "Sunbeam" from the previous year.
