3 stars KARFAGEN is one of the three-band projects featuring Ukrainian composer and keyboardist Antony Kalugin as a central member. In between his productions with his other bands Sunchild and Hoggwash he's managed to release four albums with Karfagen since he made his debut as a recording artist back in 2006. "Solitary Sandpiper Journey" is the most recent of these and was released in 2010.

If you enjoy symphonic progressive rock and have a soft spot for the 70's version of the genre in general and bands like Camel in particular, Karafgen is a band you will most likely want to explore. Their take on this style is more eclectic than Latimer's, including frequent jazz rock and a select few purebred jazz sequences for starters, and the symphonic scope of their repertoire does cover a lot more ground too. The mood, atmosphere and feel of the compositions are more closely linked in, however, which is why I estimate that particular crowd to be something of a key audience.
