Quick Update

Sorry dear readers for the lack of postings. Due to some family stuff and decorating! Anyway, hopefully normal service will be resumed shortly. But here is a quick update.

Really enjoying the new Kenso album. For those not in the know, Kenso are a fantastic Japanese band who expertly mix symphonic prog and jazz rock fusion. A sort of bit of Bruford, Brand X with the jazzier bits of mid period Genesis. They don't release often as the band I think are just a part time project as the leader, guitarist Yoshihisa Shimizu is a dentist! Anyway, this new one is more melodic but still full of their complex compositions. Excellent stuff. The box set of their back catalogue from a few years back is one of my most prized posessions.


Finally, why is everyone hating the new Yes album? I have never experienced such polar opposite views to my own on this. I think it's quite excellent. Yes, it's very laid back, but the addition of Jon Davison is such a positive effect. I am glad music is such a personal thing.
