MAX GREGER JR,MILAN PILAR & CHARLY ANTOLINI - CATCH UP VOL. 1














Max Greger,Milan Pilar and Charly Antolini for Calig from 1975.
Greger-Keyboards,Pilar-Bass,Antolini-Drums.

Now oop -here's the dusty groove review:
A classic bit of 70s funk from Germany .This rare 1975 set was the brainchild of 3 of Germany's funkiest jazz players -- drummer Charly Antolini, whose drums crackled on some of the best MPS recordings; keyboardist Max Greger Jr, who made some great straighter albums in the 60s; and bassist Milan Pilar, an electric player with a really warm and round tone. Together, the trio grooves through some excellent funky numbers really jamming with a soulful groove, as Greger switches effortlessly between piano, moog, Fender Rhodes, mellotron, and organ! Includes the funky break classic "Onkel Joe" plus gems like "Moonlight On a Bald Head", "Catch Up", "Blues For The Kaiser", "Lydia", and "Spinning Wheel". Their first album 'Catch Up' was recorded in 1975 in the legendary Munich Studios, for the label Calig. Rare Groove addicts consider this album as a speciality
.
I'm no rare groove addict but this really is a bomb!

Nice one! By the way, my grandmother used to listen to Max Greger (probably Sr.) a lot. In Germany, he was a big star in the James Last league of jazz.
