SBB have more than 60 releases on their back and is still one of Poland's most essential prog/fusion groups. They are still going strong in spite of the fact that the group first saw the light way back in '71. As before it is still the grand old master and founder Josef Skrzek who is the leading force in SBB. He is a true master on keyboards. On this album he is assisted by Greek Apostolis Anthimos on guitars and drums.

 

It's remarkable how SBB is still capable of releasing top notch albums.While their 70's releases were more prog/blues based this is pure jazzrock/fusion.

 

The music much reminds of Bruford, UK, Group 87 and Pierre Moerlen's Gong and the album is highly recommended to fans of these genres. The album clocks in at almost 80 mins and has 16 tracks.
