Puppenhaus - "Jazz Macht Spazz" {Germany} [1973-74] (prog jazz-rock)

No progressive rock music fan should be misled by the album title "Jazz macht Spazz", a bowdlerization of "jazz makes fun", this is progressive jazz-rock at its best. Büdi Siebert (flutes and saxes), Herbert Binder (gt), Frank Fischer (bass), later with Release Music Orchestra, Thomas Rabenschlag (keys) and drummer Bea Maier (later with Zomby Woof and Moira), all well trained on the instruments, played a varied, inventive, melodic and often furious kind of music with lots of Krautrock magic influenced by Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Soft Machine and Weather Report. 5 titles on this CD were recorded at German radio station SWF, 2 titles are live recordings (taped from the soundboard), all in all 77 minutes of great flute and sax playing, furious and lyrical guitar and bass work, hypnotic rhythm patterns and perfect keyboard sounds. Hard to believe, that Puppenhaus never recorded an album. In 1980 Büdi Siebert with friends recorded an album under the name "Herrgottsax", which also will be released in the next month on Long Hair. Digitally remastered from original master tapes. CD comes with comprehensive booklet, band story by the musicians, many photos and especially with a wonderful cover based on a painting by drummer Bea Maier. Highly recommended,Puppenhaus_Jazz-macht-Spass_3147,N.html

I've just listened to this MONSTER and I have to say that I'm officialy blown away by this super band from outerspace! But Isabel, this is way too much jazz to be considered progressive, that's my humble opinion anyway :) Thank you so much!

Leroy Area is quite similar to this if you are interested. Also Moving Gelatine Plates have similar sound. I can't remember something else right now, but lots of jazz rock bands of the early 70's sounded a lot like this.

P.S. I just remembered John Klemmer's Blowin' Gold, check it out!
