Jazz Q biography JAZZ Q was formed in 1964 by Martin Kratochvil (piano) and Jiri Stivin (woodwinds). In their early years, they were inspired by the late 50s free jazz happening in America. By the late 60s though, after becoming familiar with the English rock scene, Kratochvil decided to go in a more electric and groove-based direction. Jiri Stivin wasn't keen on playing this style and left shortly after recording their debut LP from 1970 "Coniunctio", which was a collaboration with a severed line-up of Blue Effect, and stylistically was a mish-mash of rock, fusion and free jazz. After that they went headlong into proper jazz-rock with all guns blazing on Symbiosis. A great album, void of the slick, sometimes noodling fusion to come on later albums. And then there's this live album.

Album · 1974 · Jazz Related Rock. 5 · 2011-01-21 snobb. Second full band's studio album (and third at all) and the first one recorded under shortened band's name (from Jazz Q Praha). Being one of the leading Czech fusion band in early 70-s, the collective has quite unusual history. In late 60-s they were full-bodied free jazz band without even small rock influences. All compositions on the mentioned album are played by both bands at the same time. As a result, one of the very first Czech fusion album was recorded, Blue Effect turned to more fusion sound, and Jazz Q Praha - from free jazz to jazz fusion! On their second album Jazz Q recorded one track with English vocalist Joan Duggan, and for this, their third release, she relocated to Czech Republic (for some years) and became regular band's member. This album shows even bigger move to jazz-rock sound with some blues elements.

Symbiosis is an album by jazz pianist Bill Evans with an orchestra arranged and conducted by Claus Ogerman recorded in 1974 and released on the MPS label.
