Started off with Gryphon's masterpiece, a concept album and some of the best krumhorn playing in all of progdom.

Image





Only one way to follow that, another concept album! It's a love story, with pirates/brigands, nymphs, satyrs and the spirit of Pan. Musical themes are richly developed and brilliantly arranged, the moods it evokes include dreamscapes and some right toe-tappers.


Image


Nearly forgot - no synthesizers!!! (tho' there is a sound effect).


Nice

Today -


Otis Rush's brilliant Right Place, Wrong Time album, so good it blew Capitol's mind so much they didn't release it for five years. Some of Otis' chord work in emulation of Jimmy Smith, the long and sometimes modular playing was just too far out for all the execs who heard it. Fortunately, thanks to special secret radio waves (don't tell big J) it is now safe for all to listen.

Image



Vocals as if speaking in tongues! Synthbass and Wind Synthesizer - this is prog folk with a spring in its step.

Image


Lastly two symphonies from his London douze, the wonderful 100 and 104, the latter being the last of his symphonies. Haydn, 'Father of the Symphony' wrote no more symphonies in the last 14 years of his life, he could progress the form no further.

Never been a fan of this album, giving it another listen to see if my view has cha, cha, changed.

Today

Started with the second set by the Allmans at the Fox Theatre Sep 24 2004. Cracking.

Image


Moved onto the excellent album The Sea - piano, cello, guitar & drums doing a sterling job of capturing the emotions.

Beautifully mellow start to the day with the always progressive Charlie Haden with his love poem to Mexico



Image



Followed by the ever so cool Miles and gang with the magical Relaxin'


Image


Then perking up a bit with rejuvenated old heroes showing they still have the magic

Image


And finishing off with the ultra progressive Arvo Part, pioneer of tintinnabuli, with some of his finest works excellently played by the home town team abetted with Tasmin Little and Martin Roscoe in fine form. Exquisite.

Martin Roscoe is from Widnes! His late dad, Albert, used to play in the same big band as my late dad.
