Coniunctio presents eary freejazz-oriented version of Jazz Q with Jiří Stivín in experimental fusion with progressive rock group Blue Effect. Music sometimes reminds expanded Soft Machine from Fourth album. With Stivín's departure shortly after this recording, Martin Kratochvíl changed direction of Jazz Q towards electric jazz-rock, Blue Effect continued in its progressive rock (or art rock) vein and also made 2 albums in fusion with Czechoslovak Radio Jazz Orchestra - New Synthesis (1971) and New Synthesis 2 (1974). All of these albums were issued on separate CDs during 90's (now out of print) and are part of Blue Effect 9CD box 1969-1989 (Supraphon 2009), from where is this taken. All later Jazz Q albums is now possible to buy as mp3 or flac download in new Supraphonline web shop, but at the moment this page has Czech version only in both language and payment possibilty.
