Theraphosa Blondi progressive jazz jazz

Enlarge this picture! The Web are perhaps best known for their progressive rock classic I Spider (available on Esoteric Recordings), an album of innovation that continues to draw comparisons with the work of Van Der Graaf Generator at that time. The Web began life as a jazz and soul influenced outfit, fronted by singer John L. Watson, enjoying Top Ten hit singles throughout Europe. By the time of Theraphosa Blondi the band underwent a metamorphosis, with their music taking on more Jazz and Progressive influences, resulting in an excellent album that is rightly seen as a precursor to both the album I Spider and the band'sevolution into the group Samurai.

I Spider progressive jazz jazz

Enlarge this picture! I Spider' is truly a lost classic of the Progressive era. Originally released by Polydor Records in 1970, the album was influenced by the experiments of groups such as King Crimson, Gentle GianT et al, but was more than a mere clone of these bands. The group evolved from an excellent blues influenced band who released three albums for Deram, who then recruited Keyboard player and writer Dave Lawson and recorded their final album. The musicianship on the album was excellent and Keyboard player Dave Lawson's compositions were groundbreaking and memorable. The group soon evolved into Samurai (whose eponymous album is also released by Esoteric this month). This Esoteric reissue is re-mastered from the original master tapes and features two bonus tracks recorded live in Sweden in 1971, a booklet with previously unseen photographs and an interview with Dave Lawson.

Fully Interlocking progressive jazz jazz

Enlarge this picture! Perhaps better known for their later albums 'Theraphosa Blondi' and the classic 'I Spider' (both available on Esoteric Recordings), 'Fully Interlocking' was the debut album by the band, prior to their transformation into a fully fledged progressive outfit. First released in 1968, the record has been described as having 'a tint of 60's psychedelia with jazz-influences and a few early progressive tendencies'. Fronted by American vocalist John L. Watson
