    Hans Joachim Rodelius of Cluster and Harmonia , etc.

    84 yrs old and a fantastic keyboardist . Super nice guy as well.

    His piano playing owes a lot to Jarrett (well that’s what I heard) but he was a synth pioneer and that entire Krautrock scene was years ahead of its time and sooo influential.

    I occasionally put on this or Neu or Can for people and ask them to guess the year and they’re always off by a decade !

    Interesting, not familiar with him.....this is why I appreciate you guys introducing me to "new" (old) music.
    Are you familiar with Bo Hansson, Mike? Swedish, died a few years ago. He played keyboards, and performed with just a drummer. Very inventive and unique. Check out his (Music Inspired By) The Lord of the Rings.

    Can were masters of Prog/Krautrock but they could also groove, viz Halleluwah.
