Embryo - Father, Son And Holy Ghosts (1972)

The third album from this German band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, marimba, guitar, tarang, violin, flute, saxophone and vocals. 

Embryo was and still is a band who incorporated a lot of diverse influences into their krautrock jazz.

It is rumored that even Miles Davis was an admirer of this album. That says a bit about this album.

The music is Eastern and Middle East influenced krautrock.

Amon Duul II is a good reference here. But Embryo took the Eastern influences to another level again on this album.

There is indeed some raga influences here.

Most of all, the music is fascinating forty minutes of krautrock with a lot of jazz influences too.

The result is a good album indeed and one to really check out if krautrock floats your boat.

This is indeed what I expected from Embryo and I have not been let down by this album.
