Déjà Vu found its beginnings in 1975 in Germany during the ‘krautrock’-era, although the band focussed mainly on the international progressive and jazzrock music. In 1977, Déjà Vu produced and released their first album, Cosmic Zack. The band’s fan community grew quickly, after a few years however, their lifespan was soon to end like many other bands in the 1970s. Luckily though, the three pioneers of the band, Eckhard Meszelinsky, Andreas Wegener and Rainer Hamacher, never lost touch.
In the meantime, Hamacher enjoyed success as an acclaimed soloist in various formations while Wegener joined the celebrated Cologne group Bläck Fööss. When Meszelinsky subsequently took over the renowned Leverkusener Jazztage festival in 1996, Déjà Vu got together once again but it was not to last long.
Eventually, while together at the jazz festival again in 2007, the three band members decided to collaborate once more. Meanwhile, however, their band name had come under the ownership of an American band explaining the reason for the now, new name, Blue Déjà Vu which is coincidently also the name of one of these album tracks.
Blue Déjà Vu is the inspiration of three individuals who, together, have created a completely original and inventive sound. Perfect harmonies, concise, anthem-like melodies together with Hamacher’s incomparable solos, merge the three artists to a distinctive sound creating a feeling of pure joy in not just a few artrock fans.
On this production they have gathered the combined support of old and new friends on bass, drums and percussion.
