4 stars I am at a bit of a loss at what more to add to previous reviews of this album. Pretty much everything has been said before, so my little piece is largely for the purpose of a reminder for those who happened to miss previous inputs.

If you appreciate Jazz-Rock, Canterbury (the British approach as opposed to Fusion in the US) then PERIGEO won't disappoint. Very much in the same league with SOFT MACHINE and NUCLEUS (non-Karl Jenkins era). A nod towards electric MILES too, although I fail to see comparisons with "Bitches Brew" in particular, more like immediately after.

As usual, thoughtful and intelligent compositions are matched by superb musicianship. Whilst I find the title track a bit sluggish, things tend to pick up soon and provide due satisfaction throughout the rest of the album. Tony Sidney on guitar deserves special mention. His fluid style is reminiscent of Terry Smith's in the bands IF and ZZEBRA. Truly unique.

A very good album altogether.

BORA | 4/5 |
