Group 87 - Live at the Savoy Tivoli

Rare video recordings from The Synopsis 1980's collection - GROUP 87 was a highly-successful San Francisco band during the last 70's and early 80's. While they existed for only a few years, they left behind two highly-acclaimed instrumental albums that are considered landmarks by many jazz, new-age, and progressive rock artists even today. The band consisted of movie composer and Windham Hill artist, Mark Isham and Peter Maunu, who recorded with JEAN-LUC PONTY, BILLY COBHAM, and AIRTO among others. Patrick O'Hearn of Windham Hill, Frank Zappa and Missing Persons was on bass, and Terry Bozzio - Frank Zappa and Missing Persons, was on drums.
Denise Gallant and Rob Schafer brought the Synopsis Video System to performances at Savoy Tivoli and The Stone in San Francisco, and 'performed' these live visuals on stage video monitors.
The total running time is approximately 40 minutes. See for more information.
