Art Rock Show – In Focus (Focus 11) (Week 9)

Focus is waarschijnlijk voor de meeste luisteraars geen onbekende. De Nederlandse progrockband is bekend om zijn instrumentale muziek, een combinatie van invloeden uit klassiek, rock en jazz. Het hoogtepunt van de groep ligt natuurlijk in de jaren zeventig. Het nieuwe studio-album is gemaakt door Thijs van Leer, Pierre van der Linden, Menno Gootjes en Udo Pannekeet. Het artwork hiervan werd verzorgd door de van Yes bekende Roger Dean.

Pete Pardo van Sea of Tranquility: “Thijs van Leer and Pierre van der Linden are obviously members from the classic era of the band, but Gootjes has been around for a number of years, and Pannekeet is the newest recruit, joining around the time of their Focus 8.5 release. Though still technically a ‘prog’ band, Focus now employ a wealth of jazz-fusion sounds into their repertoire, which you can hear on the wonderfully quirky & complex “Mazzel”, guitars, keys, and flute all intertwining with each other over some tricky rhythms.… Read more...

Art Rock Show – Echoes from Within Dragon Island (Week 8)

Karfagen is het Oekraïense woord voor Carthago. Karfagen is ook de naam van de Oekraïense band die in 1997 door Antony Kalugin werd opgericht. De band heeft gedurende enkele jaren op een bijzonder laag pitje gestaan waardoor Kalugin zich volledig kon richten op zijn solocarrière. Het nieuwe album is het werk van niet minder dan 19 muzikanten…

Prog Archives review: “Antony Kalugin has again pushed the boundary of his symphonic works. This tenth album of his Karfagen project is high in style and class. The theme of this album is based on poems from the classic author Robert Louis Stevenson. Antony brings in many musicians which feeds this wonderful composition to be ecstasy for the ears. Echoes from within Dragon Island contains 4 tracks. ‘Dragon Island Suite’ is broken into three parts.… Read more...
