5 stars Never too soon!

I am really pleased that JB has finally made it to PA. He is a deserving artist whose work spans many genres. An elder statesman of the music scene, he's left his mark in many categories, be that Rock, Jazz, or Blues. He has previously collaborated with Robin Trower, another veteran of the Rock scene, on the BLT (Bruce, Lorber, Trower) projects.

"Seven Moons" finds Bruce and Trower together again delivering mature compositions with the assistance of the excellent Gary Husband (one time PA member, too!) on the skins. All of them are seasoned musicians with a combined wealth of talent and experience and the end result speaks for itself.

Trower is a fine musician who comes from the "Hendrix school". He is one of the few whose well crafted guitar licks often evoke memories of Hendrix. It's fair to say that he is reluctant to stretch out, preferring shorter tunes filled with impeccable, albeit brief solos.

Having said that, the three "old warhorses" perfectly complement each other here, providing a fine balance. The material is largely based on the studio album, but naturally, the live performance includes some old favourites, too. Excellent work and both live and studio versions of "Seven Moons" are highly recommended. It's pleasing to see that many decades on it's still possible to compose material that sounds fresh and new.

BORA | 5/5 |
