4 stars If you call an album "Progressivity" you have to deliver. And it helps if you start with someone as talented as Percy Jones on bass. Throw in Frank Katz, who played drums with Jones in the 90's version of Brand X, and spectacular vibes player Marc Wagnon and this album comes through.

With Brand X guitarist John Goodsall sitting in for three of the ten tracks, there is certainly a Brand X feeling to the album. And it does come close. They are missing the blinding fast keyboard/guitar unison riffs, and that's bad. But they are also missing Phil Collins singing, so that more than makes up for it.

The songs vary between Brand X-like fusion fiestas and less structured free jamming. And it's all good.

My only complaint is the two tracks with "prepared voice" by Sarah Pillow. The odd treatment distracts from the music, and even gets a bit annoying at times.

Evolver | 4/5 |
