One of the most original and innovative Krautrock bands, Embryo fused traditional ethnic music with their own jazzy space-rock style. Over their 40 year existence, during which Christian Burchard has been the only consistent member, the group has traveled the world, playing with hundreds of different musicians and releasing over 20 records. This is an album of never-before-released jams recorded live in 1976 in various locations. This is the only recording of their collaboration with the Italian jazz legend Massimo Urbani during a wild live performance in a church in Udine, Italy. If you freaked out on Jimmy Jackson's organ-playing on Steig aus, then Message from Era Ora is right up your alley. Dieter Miekautsch is heavy on his Fender Rhodes and Urbani's alto sax fits like a glove on this exuberant but relaxed fusion Kraut session. Christian Burchard's drumming is as agile as ever, while Uve Muellrich's bass gallops alongside Roman Bunka's funky, psychedelic guitar. Message from Era Ora is much more than just another unearthed archival recording, it's a rare occasion to actually feel the enthusiasm and joy that fuelled their jams back in 1976.
