I've always been a little late for everything. Discovered Colosseum in mid seventies - Too late, Then Colosseum II in beginning of the 80's, arrghh again too late, Tempest was obscure for me untill late 80's - Sighhh! But then in the mid 80's I suddenly were at the right place at the right time, in a small jazz club in Copenhagen (Montmartre) where a mixed constellation of jazz/fusion musicians gathered together for a few concerts. They were based on Jan Akkerman recording his new album "It could happen to you" in Denmark backed by Danish keyboardist Kenneth Knudsen, who's music I was very much into, with his own group "Anima". The musical project was intelligently named "Special Project" and was further backed by Pablo Nahar (B), Bjorn J:Son Lindh (Keyboards/Flute), and Jon Hiseman on drums. Might also have had Cy Nicklin on vocals, but am unsure, but he was part of "Anima" The set was a mixture of Jan Akkerman songs, Kenneth Knudsens Anima songs (Striptease is the most memorable one), a little J:Son Lindh (too much actually as he was drunk as a skunk, could barely stand on his feet and played wrong keys constantly) and a little Colosseum, Remember Jon telling that the most armbreaking and difficult drum piece to play was Bolero, which he offcourse went on to play :-). A marvellous night, which I'll always remember, even though the memorabilia has since disappeared. RIP
