Monday's Long Song

Bildergebnis für kraan live

Kraan were a band that was very popular in the early 70's. Formed in 1970 in Ulm, Southern Germany by Hellmut Hattler and Peter Wolbrandt. They have their roots in late 60's krautrock scene and included pieces of rock and jazz/fusion to their sound. Dominated by Hattler's excessive bass lines that sometimes went to duel with Wolbrandt's guitar. All under a steady flowing rhythms. This song is from a double live album from 1973 that is still played sometimes at my home.

Never heard of these guys Walter, but it's right up my street. Is all their stuff in a jazz/rock vein?

Yes Swede, they were trained by (kraut)-rock but soon got the feeling for including jazz/fusion/world elements into their sound. I saw them live a several times during the last decades and was always fascinated how they play this crossover sound.

Just getting around to this Walter, it is very very good.
