About this item
Artistically and influentially Jan Hammer's "The First Seven Days" had a major impact on its release in 1975. It was one of the first attempts to fully realize a fusion of electronic, pianistic and progressive styles into a singular vision. Hammer's work with the Mahavishnu Orchestra enabled him to build his own studio at home in rural New York state and this pastoral setting infuses much of "The First Seven Days" with an underlying calm over which Hammer multi-tracks his keyboard frenzies and unique artistic vision. International success with "Miami Vice" was a decade away but this work is an amazing example of his talent as performer and composer.
