SPEKTAR – Nepoznate Boje Spektra
It’s Saturday & time for our weird-saturday-bandcamp-findings!
An awesome reissue by the German label Black Pearl Records of the Croatian jazz, funk & fusion band SPEKTAR from the seventies – there’s a lot of obscure east European grooves here with some lush organs & synths. here’s some more info taken from the Bandcamp page:
“The most “spektarcular” discovery of Croatian Jazz Funk recordings from the private archiv of Bass player and producer Davor Rocco, researched by Višeslav Laboš !!
An amazing collaboration of the high class Beat and Funk musicians of Zagreb´s progressive music-scene from the early 1970s. The members Enco Lesić, Davor Rocco, Dragan Brčić and Neven Frangeš were also performing with Ex-Yugoslavian Jazz and Funk legends like Boško Petrović, Gabi Novak, Drago Mlinarec, Josipa Lisac and Grupa Indexi.
Spektar Combo released unfortunately just one, mostly vocalised album on croatian label Suzy Records in 1974. But , “…it was difficult to imagine what Spektar sounded like, before their self-titled album was released”, as the legendary critic of Croatian Jazz-Rock scene Dražen Vrdoljak was articulated.”
enjoy this beautiful release!
