4 stars This album came out in the frame of Eurpean Cultural Capital of the year 2002 which was Bruges (a superb Flemish medieval city still remarkly preserved) and was part of a 10 CD collection on Belgian Jazz - other titles likely to interest progheads are Octurn and Philippe Catherine the fabulous guitarist once in Focus.

As usual Aka moon works in project and here was no different as the usual trio united with a trio of electric guitarist - Prasana of India , the Afro-American Dave Gilmore (not the Floyd guy) and their former mate Pierre Van Dormael (back when they were Nasa Na). They managed to do a sort of tribute for three guitarist in "Jimi's Three Words"Hendrix , "Last Call from Jaco " Pastorius and John "Scofield" plus another three part number about Paco de Lucia (not entirely succesful). The 3 number also pops in Yang- Yin-Yang and Three Oceans so one understands that the theme here would be the trio.

One of my personal fave from Aka Moon along with their debut.
