In 1976, former Dzyan members drummer Peter Giger and guitarist/zaz player Eddy Marron teamed up with jazz bassist Günter Lenz to record two stellar, but very obscure, jazz oriented records "Beyond" (77) and "Where The Hammer Hangs" (78). The sound is not quite as experimental as Dzyan (what is?) but the group qualify as really well done fusion with some interesting twists with time changes, and different moods conveyed with Marron's tasty guitar, Lenz's probing bass, and Giger's flowery percussion.


To Skye............. I want a pleasant listening..... Enjoy !!!

    1. Wow, that would be great Vitko! Given the quality of this music, it's a pity both of these albums have become such rarities. I'd have been happy if they could have realeased a dozen albums like this, but it's lucky to have what they were able to release.

  4. I like the record, especially Günter Lenz bass playing. I think he is (was) always underrated, unfortunatley standing in the shadow of Eberhard Weber. This record shows what a fine player he is. A nice record indeed and as always a wonderful rip.

  6. Dear Vitko,

    Thank you very much for sharing this album in the quality it deserves, and please forgive my delayed response to your posting here.

    I love this album, too, especially the heavy "Quinar", which reminds me a bit of King Crimson with Bill Bruford. Though Giger seems to be the main star, Marron and Lenz really impress as well, switching off electric and acoustic instruments from track to track with such versatility.

    I consider the follow-up album "Where the Hammer Hangs" to be equal to this one, if not slightly better, so please, if you do get your hands on it, I would be overjoyed to see it shared here.

    Gratefully, yours truly,

    Skye
