It's been a long time since there was any solo studio material from Trevor Rabin.

In rock music terms the South African born singer, guitarist and songwriter is best known for his time with YES, but since leaving the group in the mid-90's Rabin has become a noted and much sought after soundtrack composer.

You have to go back to 1989 for Rabin's last solo album of all-new material (the rather excellent Can't Look Away) and for this release, some twenty-three years and more than three dozen soundtracks later, Rabin has gone back to his homeland for inspiration.

Many of the song titles are places or locations from Rabin's formative, teenage and early-twenties years in Johannesburg, while the album's title is the name of a flowering plant native to many of the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world including parts of Africa.

But what makes the album even more interesting is the fact it's not another hard melodic rock release. Jacaranda is primarily instrumental and is unashamedly a jazz and jazz-rock fusion album.
From the opening flurry of notes on the short `Spider Boogie' and on to the quirky and punchy `Market Street' the listener is aware that this is a far cry from Rabin's earlier solo albums or his work with YES.

With the exception of the drums that feature on seven of the twelve tracks Rabin plays all of the instruments. And he plays them rather well.
The beats are provided by long-time Trevor Rabin stickman Lou Molino III, noted jazz rock drummer Vinnie Colaiuta (who appears on `Market Street' and the fusion-tastic `Through the Tunnel') and Ryan Rabin (Trevor Rabin's son).

I've discovered this album accidentally, by reading a review on Yes facebook fanpage - what a bliss!

Normally I don't even look at jazz albums, but this fusion of jazz, rock and classical sounds is exceptional and it's something I would never expect from Trevor Rabin. Great music which sounds great at home and in car ;) . The price could be lower, but still it's worth buying.

I am in the process of re living my early years with particular interest in the music I grew up with. Trevor Rabin featured with Yes and I was particulary taken by His guitar work. He went off my radar for a good number of years and after listening to Jacaranda I was not disappointed. Great album.

From the school days of his youth in a SA group "Conglomeration", through the (then) South African "super group" Rabbitt and onto the world renowned "Yes", Trevor Rabin has been THE supreme front-man. His musical scores for movies have been many and well received by critics and fans to boot. He is a musician's musician and I couldn't wait to get my hands on his latest CD "Jacaranda" (named after a beautiful South African indigenous tree). After playing it the first time I was totally overawed with it!! The word stunning comes to mind as Mr Rabin has shifted the bar one notch higher yet once again. I would highly recommend this CD to all Rabin fans and to those who don't know his music, I'd urge them to lend their ears to a sample listen. Tal Wilkenfeld's input with her sublime bass playing is also worth noting and adds an extra dimension to an already superb musical experience :):)Don't just sit there, buy this album!!!
