For the edification of the confused, the country ascription above is due to the fact the album was recorded in Macedonia (as you can see from the back cover) by Yugoslav (specifically, Serbian) musicians. Macedonia is a small country just north of Greece which has nothing to do with the former Yugoslavia obviously, geographically, I say this due to some confusion in the comments below created by someone who probably doesn't understand English too well. Or if they do understand English they don't read well, or perhaps, have trouble comprehending. Or are simply out to catch me even at the cost of making a mistake. Something like that. At any rate this record was posted before on the website yugojazz -- which I figured was likely because it's hard to find any yugo-related material not yet posted online. My mistake for thinking I had found something original!
This record reminds me a bit of Kjol's stuff with its intense fusionary output from a quartet of wonderful musicians and its 'updated' eighties style of breathy jazz. I'm surprised it's not better known considering how good the music is. There is some experimental stuff in here too, and very little of the conventional (jazzy or bluesy standards) -- if at all.
The start of track 5 sampled below features some really oddly ahead of its time distorted vocals behind the furiously fast pianist runs. Notice the synths behind him blowing as if in a wind chamber.
Really remarkable find, again from the growing bin record store. I will repeat how amazing it is to see so many rare and marvellous gems in one place and at such affordable prices compared to many an online record store.
The stars are Milos Petrovic the pianist, and Rade Bulatovic the bassist. They are rounded out by Jovan Maljokovic on tenor sax and Miroslav Karlovic on drums.
