Jacky Orszaczky “Beramiada” 1976 Australia Prog Jazz Funk

Jacky Orszaczky “Beramiada” 1976 ultra rare Australia Prog Jazz Funk
Extremely rare Australian progressive jazz LP. Solo record from the ex member of the Hungarian band Syrius recorded after he toured and settled in Australia. Featuring Graham Morgan and Peter Jones from the jazz funk group Arena, guitarist John Robinson from Blackfeather and Michael Carlos from Tully. Includes the sought after jazz funk track Friends Of Mrs S..................

Born in Hungary, Orszaczky moved [to Australia] in 1974 and soon became an in-demand session bass player and band leader, fronting Marcia Hines's band in the late 1970s. As a muso, arranger and producer he contributed to albums from artists including the Whitlams, Tim Finn, Savage Garden, You Am I, Hoodoo Gurus, Grinspoon and Leonardo's Bride. Orszaczky remained popular in Hungary and attracted 30,000 people at his annual Budapest concerts.
Orszaczky got his start in the Hungarian progressive rock group, SYRIUS, before heading to Australia to live and record. This track is from his first solo album in the '70s. The song is ultra-funky, and has a sloppy laid-back groove. His bass playing is spot-on, with a great tone. He may have recorded this in Sydney, but it would sound quite at home with much of the Eastern European jazz-fusion of the time period.
