5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and Interesting, 13 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stand Well Back (Audio CD)
A small group for Colin Towns, who also plays big band modern jazz with the Mask Orchestra and has recorded arrangements of music by other people, such as Mahavishnu Orchestra and Miles Davis (Amongst others!). This album is a genre bending affair, with hints of avant-garde (In the opening track, especially) & progressive rock in some of the instrumental passages. I loved the interplay with the guitar, sax and piano, leading off into solos from one or the other. An absolute stunner of an album, with some fantastic rythmns and a few excursions into jazz/rock fusion. In The Forbidden Dance a modern sounding dub rythmn rumbles away, building up layers with the other instruments befor falling back again and letting another instrument taking over with some atmospheric soloing.

It's always interesting, and in places sounds like the tunes from a yet-to-be made film. Lovers of the jazzier side of Prog Rock will enjoy this!
