David Jackson have recently been joining the David Cross Band as a special guest at their live performances, playing David Cross Band material as well as a few King Crimson classics plus George Martin's Theme One, that was covered by Jackson's Van der Graaf Generator in their early days. Personally, I am hoping very much that a live album and/or live video of one of these performances will emerge.

Another Day is a totally different beast however, being the result of a collaborative effort of David Cross and David Jackson. This album is more of a Jazz-Rock/Fusion album, compared to the Heavy Prog of the David Cross Band. The most similar to Another Day among Cross' solo albums is probably his first, Memos from Purgatroy, from 1989. David Jackson's 1992 solo album Tonewall Stands can also be a relevant reference.

The music on Another Day is completely instrumental and driven by Cross' violins and Jackson's saxophones. The two instrumentalists are backed by drums and bass, handled by Craig Blundell and Mick Paul respectively. The result is high quality fusion that showcases Cross and Jackson on their respective instruments.

Another Day is an enjoyable listen, and is worth having if you are a fan of Cross' and Jackson's careers outside of their respective bands.
