Review by ProgShine
COLLABORATOR Errors & Omissions Team
4 stars Curved Air has been going strong since their comeback in 2008. Sonja Kristina (vocals) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums), got themselves new musicians (nowadays: Kirby Gregory on guitar, Chris Harris on bass, Robert Norton on keyboards and Paul Sax on violin) and they keep touring and releasing material.

Their last studio album was North Star (2014) and from that tour comes this new Live album: Tapestry of Propositions.

But a warning must be given about this record: it's not your normal Curved Air record. Tapestry Of Propositions is the first volume of the Curved Air Rarities Series and brings to the listener an hour long version of the song 'Propositions' (from the band's debut album Air Conditioning) with over a dozen of the improvisations which usually happen in their concerts. But here you have them edited together to flow naturally. And it kinda works!

Sonja Kristina vocals are present only on the opening and ending tracks so what you have here is an album for fans of the band and improvisational music, really. And as it is, it's a very good rarity for Curved Air's fans!

Interesting idea, let's see what the band will bring us for the next albums of the series!
