This day 70 years ago Jan Hammer was born in Prague. He's one those pioneers that brought synthesizers and moog into modern jazz music. He first got attention by his collaboration with Al Di Meola and his appearance on Billy Cobham's album Stratos, one of the best albums in the early 70's of jazz fusion sound. He got famous as he made a contract of writing the title track and the soundtrack of the American series Miami Vice. I don't know if you remember these days but for me it was essential to watch every episode of this series.
Happy birthday Jan.
