Mostly solo effort from the guitarist and main songwriter in Jane. Hess is playing guitar, bass, keys and drums. He has help on drums from Bernie Van Der Graaf and Rosebud on a few tracks, Ulli Heicher plays bass and percussion on Vegas, and Wolfgang Krantz provides strings on 3 tracks. Sternentanz was released on the Sky label in 1983. The sound is quite different from the progressive Kraut that Jane was making. More of a cosmic sheen on these jams as befits a record named Star Dance.
