"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

Nuo - Song Collection (Czch 199?)

These recordings from the end of the 90s from NUO are neither homemade lofi nor extremely psychedelic (but so what!) - they are rather quite professionel, and pretty good. We're talking about JAZZ with a slight psych-prog touch (e.g. on 'Moe', a track that could easily be mistaken for a mid-seventies jazzy krautrock piece by EMBRYO or a track by one of WOLFGANG DAUNER's or EBERHARD WEBER's projects).

NUO are: Jakub Zitko- keyboards, Marcel Bárta- altosax, Pavel Hrubý- tenorsax, Oskar Török- trumpet, Jan Jirucha- trombone, Jiří Šimek- guitar, Aleš Slavík- bass, Miloš Dvořáček- drums, Ivan Acher- fonovox.

Some of the afore mentioned musicians, namely Ivan Acher and Jakub Zitko, also played with 1st Regional before they went to NUO. They left Liberec to study on the jazz school in Prague and now work as professional musicians for various recording sessions. NUO released a CD
"Multimusic Minibigband" in 2004. (Info by Richard Charvat)
