A Liquid Fusion from the Adriatic Sea.

After Miles was opening the door between Jazz and Rock with Filles de Kilimanjaro (68), In a Silent Way (69) and especially with Bitches Brew (70), there was a lot of good creative bands playing a great fusions of Jazz and Rock throughout the 70’s.

One of these Groups was Italian Agora from Ancona area at the Adriatic side of central Italy, Their first studio album (1976) was called Angora´2 based on the fact that they had already released a live album from Montreux international jazz festival.

 

Agora is a relative unknown band (outside the absolute inner fussion circle), playing a style that is not ground breaking, the similarities to the big Jazz/Rock fusion legends is very evident, but to me it is still a nice album with some very fine fusion. Especially the woodwind instruments works very well for me on this album.

  1. Enjoyed this very much. Made me realise that although I have US and UK (and of course Aus) fusion covered, there is still plenty out there from other areas. I know Area of course, but Agora are new to me. Thanks.

  2. Thanks a lot – I guess there are just so many diffrent albums out there, that you can keep discovering forever, even it we are only talking about the “golden years”
