4 stars In fact this is a supergroup featuring Gary Moore on guitar, Don Airey on keyboards and Jon Hiseman on drums along John Mole on bass. Apart from the smooth and polished track "Rivers" (fortunately the only vocal performance!) this CD is a very captivating and alternating blend of blues, jazz, symphonic and classic delivering a very dynamic and adventurous rhythm-section, many exciting soli on guitar and keyboards and splendid interplay between the 'vintage' sound (Minimoog, Hammond, string-ensemble, clavinet, Fender Rhodes piano) from Don Airey (at this moment a Deep Purple member) and the harder-edged guitar runs from Gary Moore. EXCELLENT!!
