O’s Notes: Producer, composer and keyboardist Jan Hammer was born in Czechoslovakia but entered the spotlight as a musician with the Mahavishnu Orchestra in the early 1970s and gained fame writing the music for Miami Vice over several years. He’s been absent from the recording scene for the greater part of a decade and returns with what he describes as a collection of “pop songs without words.” He retains heavy use of electronics on“Seasons Pt. 1“promising a follow up with similar peaceful songs.
