EKSEPTION is a Dutch band that was famous during the late sixties/early seventies for the way it combined themes from classical composers with contemporary rock and jazz in a blend of dominating, virtuoso keys and trumpet plus sax(es). The story of EKSEPTION as we know it begins when they won the first prize at the Loosdrecht Jazz Festival in 1968, and they were rewarded with a record contract with Philips.

In 1958 the school band The Jokers is formed in Haarlem. Members are Hans Alta (bass), Rein van den Broek (trumpet), Tim Griek (drums, he was the producer for the first Brainbox album, he died in a car crash in 1988) and Huib van Kampen (guitar/saxophone). The play covers of well known songs. In 1965 the name is changed to Incrowd. In 1967, the name has already changed to Ekseption because there is another Dutch band with the name Incrow…

There is an USUAL opinion on this album:
The CD “Live in Germany” is best avoided, it’s a registration of a concert of EKSEPTION in the nineties, but it does not at all reflect the energy of the band used to have on stage.

This contemporary (2003) look at the Dutch symphonic progressive rock band EKSEPTION consists mostly of vintage TV footage showing them miming to their records. There are 24 songs here, and at least 18 of them are productions from Holland TV. In the style of the times, everybody is wearing wild clothing and they're posed in unlikely settings – beaches, rooftops, pools, a tractor salesroom(?) – either with unplugged instruments or, if the budget is really slim, none at all.

EKSEPTION is a Dutch band that was famous during the late sixties/early seventies for the way it combined themes from classical composers with contemporary rock and jazz in a blend of dominating, virtuoso keys and trumpet plus sax(es). The story of EKSEPTION as we know it begins when they won the first prize at the Loosdrecht Jazz Festival in 1968, and they were rewarded with a record contract with Philips. At the suggestion of Rick van der LINDEN, the band's keyboard player, they decided to record rock versions of Beethoven's "Fifth" and Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance". Although initially the single with "The Fifth" did not catch on, three months after it was released suddenly it began to sell like hotcakes, and the basis for the now famous EKSEPTION formula was established: a cocktail of classical music with (symphonic) rock and jazz. Following the success of the single, their first album was recorded, which contained a mix of covers, classical themes in a rock/jazz setting, and one song written by the band.

Beggar Julia's Timetrip is based on a story of a man who travels through time in a spaceship and observes the great composers at work. Thus, the story is of course a perfect setting for introducing some rock/jazz versions of Albinoni's Adagio, Bach's Italian Concerto and Tchaikovsky's piano concerto garnished with some Beethoven.

Ekseption's 6th album included some personnel-changes as both Dick Remelink and Peter de Leeuwe were changed by Jan Vennik and Pieter Voogt. But these changes didn't affect the band's musical inspiration and artistic quality as "Trinity" proved to be another of their best albums.

The fourth album shows a band that had evolved into a tight symphonic rock ensemble, playing side by side with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in a performance of the centre piece of the album: "Piccadilly Sweet", a suite for orchestra and rock band written by Rick van der Linden.
