Magog were a Swiss sextet who played many concerts throughout Europe in the seventies - including at the prestigious Montreux Festival in 1973, a performance released on LP on the great Evasion label. They also went on to record one album for JAPO/ECM and both LPs became underground classics garnering much praise from Melody Maker at the time.




The groups approach reflected an all embracing attitude to music making that was akin to other groups of the time such as Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi band and the more improvisatory explorations of early Weather Report. However Magog had their own very distinct personality and like British jazz of the early 1970's is clearly deserving of rediscovery.

Enjoy!
