Joachim Kühn, talented jazz and fusion keyboardist who had many albums through the 60s and 70s (and beyond). "Cinemascope" is probably the rarest from this time frame, and the one that is most aligned with my personal focus from a musical standpoint. A very strong fusion effort, with Toto Blanke lighting it up on guitar. Features a brilliant gatefold cover.



If you find it, buy this album!

  3. Thanks, I hope you appreciate also this other one, not a masterwork but anyway a good stuff, with two interesting versions from Eric Dolphy songbook, and a tremendous collective impro as last track
