Guy Manning has, over the last few years, become a particular favourite singer/songwriter of mine. He possesses a rare ability to tell musical stories in the most lyrical and expressive manner, one that breathes life into the subject matter of his songs. So, what of the new Manning release, The Root, The Leaf & The Bone? The album consists of nine songs that are loosely concerned with the concept of change - our place in history, our relationship with the natural world, memories of earlier times and the legacy we leave behind us. Each and every day we walk amongst our history, whether it's out in open view or buried beneath our feet. This album is Guy Manning's reflection on what that all means to us in an age where we rarely have chance to contemplate anything other than what we're doing at any given moment.

Helping Manning weave his tales on the album are, Kris Hudson-Lee on bass, David Million on guitars, Julie King on vocals and Rick Henry on percussion. There are several guest players, some long-term allies to Manning, who are often key to adding to the rich texture of the music on this album, particularly Steve Dundon on flute, Ian Fairbairn on fiddle, David Albone on drums, Marek Arnold on saxophones, joss Allsopp on trumpet and Kathy Hampson on cello. Also, adding to Guy Manning and Kris Hudson-Lee's artwork and Kevin Brudenell-Maylin's photography is booklet art contributed by one Brian Watson - a lovely fellow, friend to many and a rapidly emerging artist!

like going back in time to the early seventies, this is very reminiscent of jethro tull because of lots of flute on the album

I started listening to Guy Manning about a year ago and he has become one of my favourite artists. This is as I said in the title one of his best albums yet, it's just a shame he has split from his backing group. Still I expect there will be plenty more to come.

Is this prog rock? Well yes I suppose so. It's certainly a concept album celebrating the English countryside and bemoaning the despoiling of the same in the name of progress. Listening to it, you hear touches of Jethro Tull, Magna Carta and possibly even Pekka Pohjola (look him up!).

Try it, yo won't be disappointed.
