Not bad in and of itself but.... 4 Nov 2002
By Michael Kydonieus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The bulk of this material is taken from two classic Hammer albums, Like Children (which he made with Jerry Goodman) and First Seven Days. Both are essential albums. First Seven Days may be the more consistent album, but Like Children has many brilliant and unusual songs, even if the vocals are somewhat unfortunate (jazz and fusion artists have never done very well in this area). To describe any of this material as new age is to insult it, as it has more complex ideas and thorny improvisations that 99% of what passes for serious jazz these days. It is a travesty that these two recordings are not available as separate cds. To have these two albums crushed into this paltry cd collection is unforgiveable. But if you have no other way to get this music, I suppose this cd is better than nothing (sigh). 7/20/2004 update: First Seven Days is now available on cd, so snap it up while it's still in print!

The Master Of The Keys 8 Aug 2001
By Paul A. Fucito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Following the success of Hammer's music in Miami Vice, this collection of his early works was released (all for the first time on CD). The sound is a combination of fusion, jazz, funk and early new age. For fans of Jean Luc Ponty, Vangellis and the early instrumentals of Level 42, this is would be a great album to add to your list. Of course, if you like Hammer's early work, this is a perfect compilation. Great early synth sounds, violin and exotic percussion provide a unique atmosphere of music.

When it was new 15 Jan 2007
By Roger Laurel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Did you ever own Jan Hammer's Oh Yeah! album in vinyl?

If you are looking to fill in those spaces in your library with the jazz you had to dispose of when you got rid of your vinyl recordings, this one is a classic.

It is the beginning roots of Jan Hammer and had always been a favorite. I had been looking for Oh Yeah! in CD reprint and nowhere to be found. Some of this collection is not up to Jan Hammer's modern skill, but he was 30 years younger at the time. Some of it is worthy of garage band material, but some shows the brilliance which was to come later.

When I first purchased Oh Yeah! in 1976, I was looking at a genius. I feel that same emotion listing to this album now!

This is not your father's Miami Vice. 22 Oct 2004
By BH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just a warning: If you are thinking about this album because you love Hammer's work on Miami Vice, you will probably be disappointed. This album is a creative mishmash of jazz and new age rock-fusion, and while Hammer's immense talent and distinctive style certainly come through in his early work here, it does not have the revolutionary brilliance of the Vice scoring.
