5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time top 10 jazz rock albums 9 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
'Oh Yeah!' is Jan Hammer's third solo album (the second for Nemperor Records). It is probably the one with the strongest element of straight jazz rock running through all the tracks. His earlier Nemperor album 'The First Seven Days' had more emphasis on electronica, hinting towards the future Miami Vice period. The first album had been recorded for the German label BASF: that straighter jazz. Now with the full catalogue of Hammer's solo and group albums available on CD, a clear progression can be heard as Hammer moved away from the jazz rock of Mahavishnu Orchestra, through funk and Latin towards straighter rock and then into electronica. The shift away from jazz rock, shown by a near absense on the third solo release 'Melodies', where Hammer and Co. were into funk (indeed lightweight soul) and more electronica. It should be noted that while Hammer's own music was moving slowly away from the jazz influences, he was also a prolific session musician, on call to provide his immediately identifable keyboard sound for the likes of Al DiMeola, John Abercrombie, Jeff Beck, Horace Arnold, Tony Williams and Elvin Jones during this period.

With 'Oh yeah!' you will get the tight interplay between violin and keys on some tracks, that had earlier characterised MO's music. But through use of funky bass lines - from both electric bass and low register Mini-Moog - we are treated to more soulful, groove-based jazz rock than experienced from MO, e.g. check the title track. Some soulful vocals add to this view. But what is perhaps unique for the time, was the funk with violin - although both Michael White and Michel Urbaniak were to release funky violin albums later. And then because of Hammer second musicial love, that of percussion, funk gives way to grooved-based Latin-jazz rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, high-energy fusion! 20 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is flawless, virtuously played jazz-rock, a must for any connesseur of artistically performed LOUD music!
The tunes are great, I've been humming "One to one" for years after I, alas, sold my vinyl records. I'am glad to have this esquisite album back in my music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Recording 8 Nov 2006
By J. Brow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I ordered this to replace my vinyl, have been waiting years for this to be released on CD and highly recommend this CD for many reasons. First, this is one of those "important" records of the Fusion era. "Magical Dog," the opening track, is written and brilliantly improvised in 11/8 time at a very fast tempo. This was ground-breaking in the 1970's and other tracks are written in odd time signatures. Second, Jan Hammer's use of lead synthesizer and unusual instrument line-up. This is fresh to listen to even now. All the musicians are on this recording are top-notch, extremely technical and talented--and went on to work with many other important musicians. It's very difficult to classify this as anything but "Fusion" and even then that's a stretch with pop-type songs inserted.

I have followed Jan Hammer's career ever since I heard "Led Boots" by Jeff Beck and found out about it was he who played on Jeff Beck's "Wired" album. Always a fun album to listen to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical!!! 1 Jan 2007
By Star Thrower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Listening to this album is pure joy! Jan Hammer is one of the most brilliant and inventive keyboard soloists in modern music. His enthusiasm and personality transcend his chosen instrument (the moog synthesizer)to inspire the listener and accompanying musicians. Equally brilliant are guitarist/violinist Steve Kindler, and bassist Fernando Saunders. Included are a few of Hammer's ingenious compositions Magical Dog, Bambu Forest, and Red and Orange. My personal favorite is Rick Laird's lyrical tune Evolove. The beautiful melody and infectious rhythms keep me coming back for more of this tune after 25 years. It's impossible to sit still while listening to this piece and the funky title track. This album obtains a perfect balance of progressive compositional sensibilities and r&b earthiness. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those flashbacks they always promised... 9 Jan 2007
By Phil Watkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yes, I still have my original vinyl copy. "Oh, Yeah?" got constant play when first released back in 1976. Tight, with amazing time changes & incredible hooks, this one wins over everyone who hears it.

Jan Hammer is backed by Jerry Goodman on violin (with whom he did the album "Like Children" earlier), and had worked with during his stint with The Mahavishnu Orchestra. Also on board are Fernando Saunders on bass, and Tony Smith on drums, who are currently working with Lou Reed (!).

A precurser to Hammer's work on "Miami Vice", this proves that he was no one-hit (or one soundtrack) wonder.

If you are a fan of electronic keyboards, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, or in-your-face beats, this is a must-have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh , Well ? 29 Sep 2012
By Hammer + Jazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Granted the musicianship here is excellent . It's fine fusion stuff . What's with the R&B vocals though ? The version of Red and Orange heard here is far less impressive than it is on John Abercrombie's TIMELESS recording of 1979 . I've listened to the recording at least four times now . Apart from the superb drumming and all around great playing (as stated earlier) , how does this record come by five star consensus from so many folk though ? Good will ? I'm aware AllMusic.com gives this record 4 and 1/2 out of 5 . This is good , often very good , fusion with some bad vocal decisions (in my opinion) . I call them as i hear them . This is NOT a remarkable recording . 3 and 1/2 out of 5 . I do wonder how many folks came here to write about this session and either crept away or fell in lockstep ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, Yeah? Oh, Yeah! 8 Nov 2006
By Clifford P. Beede - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've had this recording on vinyl since about 1978. It's the only Jan Hammer I own, so I can't fairly compare it to anything else of his. But I love it. You would be hard-pressed to call it "jazz" per se--actually it's much closer to being a rock recording. What a combination, though! Synthesizers galore, violin (Steven Kindler), bass (Fernando Saunders), and a drummer (Tony Smith) who sings lead vocals on a couple of cuts! He has a light soul voice that adds yet another dimension to this very diverse recording. I can't understand why it took so long for someone to release "Oh, Yeah" on CD, but I guess the popularity and recognition of the Miami Vice soundtrack, which Jan Hammer wrote and performed kind of precludes everything else. Whatever. Now it's available, and at a very reasonable price. No fancy liner notes or bonus tracks, but the remastered recording (by Jan Hammer himself) sounds fabulous. Chant along and enjoy-"Oh, yeah?...Oh, yeah!"
