Shivananda biography
SHIVANANDA was a Swiss fusion band founded in Zurich in 1973 by keyboard player Kurt BAEBI. The band was one of most successful live jazz rock bands of the time, with awards at the National Jazz festival in Augst and Zurich, appearances at Jazz Festival in Montreux and others by 1975 when the group actually started having extended European tours and was joined by KEISER twins as their rhytm section. In 1977 they released their debut album 'Cross Now' via Gnome Records which would also release their second album 'Headlines'. SHIVANANDA had a mostly stable line-up until 1982 along with several guest musicians but after their last album in 1983 which was produced by BAEBI the activites of the band died down.

3 stars A swiss obscurity from mid to late '70 named Shivananda with only 2 albums in their pockets , first from 1977 and second from 1979, they disbanded around 1983 remaining totaly unknown. The name of the game here is jazz fusion with progressive touches, quite ok most of the time, I like this kind of jazz fusion, the instruments working all the time and has a light overall sound. The second release from 1979 named Headlines issued at Gnome records with an intresting artwork definetly pleases me from start to finish. The guitar has an important role here, with nice catchy parts, nice grooves and good melodic passages. Some sax is present here aswell, pieces like Shiva's Smiling or Little big men are winners to me, Carlo Milan the guitar player and Kurt Baebi the keybordist made a good job. All in all more then decent, not fantastic but good, maybe similar at some point with dutch band Spin or german jazz fusion bands from that period. 3.5 stars
Thanks to historian9 for the artist addition.
