Thread: Bands Like Group 87?

    Allright then, here's one without guitars, but with funky horns and great keyboard-stuff from David Hirschfelder, known for his work with Little River Band and his soundtrack-stuff (Shine):

    Pyramid: Sunshower:

    Thanks, that's nice. Kind of a Jeff Lorber Fusion with trumpet instead of sax.

    Occassionally I also hear some Bruford (in the melodic guitar-solo's), Kit Watkins and the obscure band Man Jumping on their E'G Records-album World Service:

    I FINALLY tracked down "World Service" by Man Jumping, and yes it's quite nice! It's closer to Startled Insects or Wally Badarou or Saqqara Dogs than Group 87, but still delicious.


    I've also been enjoying their first album, "Jump Cut":

    ^^Cool.
    I must admit I bought World Service when I saw it for a very low price and I noticed it was on EG Records. Didn't know the band at all.

    I noticed that most of the EG artist roster was pretty high-profile, but there are a few oddities out there like this, Pictures and Ambitious Lovers (the latter featuring Peter Scherer, keyboardist for Island).

    Jerry Goodman's '80s Private label albums
    Focus "Jan Akkerman and Thijs van Leer" -- I think there is a good Focus record in there, somewhere, if there were a human rhythm section
    Al DiMeola Scenario -- riffy, not as fusiony, Jan Hammer's transition to Miami Vice?

    Yes, The No Speak releases were excellent, almost all of them -- as noted in posts #16 & 17. Bardens & Goodman & Haycock are particularly good suggestions!
