It Do

Christian Burchard has led the ever-changing Dadaist jazz-rock collective Embryo for the best part of fifty years. He has brought his multi-instrumentalist daughter, Marja, on board for his latest venture. It Do gets its name by reversing the phrase ‘Do It’ which was used as a slogan in the sixties by hipste...view item »


Africa is latter-day Embryo but that doesn't seem to be a problem for these always active rockers: released back in 1992, it saw the band take prog rock under their wing while utilising propulsive and hypnotic percussion that kept going on and on and on.

Originally released in 1971, this was Embryo's second record. I've never been that HUGE a fan of this long-running German ensemble, but if you're in the right mood, nearly any Embryo record can take your brain on a way-out there galactic mind trip. Simply love the Eastern influence of folk-jazz-rock 'vibe' that I experience when I listen to Rach...view item »
