This was a weird experimental jazz rock outfit from Kamp-Lintfort. They started in September 1967 as Ambition Of Music. In 1968 bassoons and trumpets were incorporated in the band, and they began to play jazz influenced live shows, both in Germany and abroad. Their two albums for Ohr were disparate in musical style: Osmose (1971) was a "progressive jazz rock" album. The four tracks were untitled. Most interesting was the opening piece, which in some ways predated the sound of Faust. The other tracks were often spiced with strange sounds and noises. Altogether, a typical sample of the German fusion sound. This interesting album also had a unique fold-up gimmick cover.
On the second album Beziehungen (1972) the group attempted to combine the fusion elements from the first album with free-jazz improvisations. Only some parts of this album were successful, like parts of the 16 minute track "Dreh Dich Nicht Um". The two-part "Leyenburg" improvisations, which occupied half the album, were almost free-form music.

Annexus Quam were one of the real screwy avant-what-the-fuck bands lost in the haze of the early days of the OHR label. They released two albums from '71/72, this being the second (following Osmose). In a curious fashion they mixed elements of floating space rock (guitars, zither, flute, etc.) with avant-jazz sax input. More odd than purely great, but an interesting sidebar to the OHR label.
