Releases information

The essential feature of this recording is to emphasize melodic side of Roz Vitalis music; if it is Avant Prog then it is "Avant Prog with human face". Perhaps, it is closer to some rare forms of Eclectic Prog.

The essential goal of the album is to explore, to expand and to emphasize Beauty.

4 stars This new live album by Roz Vitalis has first of all a very good sound quality. Of course not exactly the same as in studio, listen to both the versions of "Lavoro D'Amore" and you'll notice some differences, but this is one of those bands able to play live almost the same way they do in studio. The other important element is that since when they added the first flute on their 2012 album "Patience of Hope", their music has taken a very original and personal direction.

The trumpet, present in almost all the tracks, brings in some sadness but in the same time on the most folky passages it can remind to Ennio Morricone's western movie soundtracks.

The trumpet that makes it sound similar to another very good band from the same city: the Yojo, but the kind of melodies and the structure of the tracks is quite different.

I don't know the whole discography of this band, so I'm not able to say whether there are unreleased tracks or not. I didn't know "The Hidden Man Of The Heart", which is my favorite track together with the pair "Passing Over"/"Passing Interlude".

In particular, the bass on "Passing Over" is remarkable. The track has a structure that could remind to CAMEL (trumpet apart), specifically, to The Snow Goose. It may be me, of course. In the Camel's masterpiece there's not an Avantgarde section as at about minute 4. After that, the acoustic guitar which starts the reprise of the main team could come from In The Court Of Crimson King, just to mention some references.

Anyway, the album is on Bandcamp as "name your price", so hoping that some bucks will be spared to help the band continue to release their excellent music, I'd better suggest to give it a listen without wasting your time with my quotes.

An excellent selection of tracks very well recorded in what seems to be a club: almost no noise out of the applauses and a mood that I usually find in the chamber music of Claude Debussy. Perfect for a rainy day.

...and an excellent addition, naturally

So, Roz Vitalis are back with another live album, which is taken from two different performances in St. Petersburg in December of 2016. What we are presented with here is the full live line-up of the band, which includes trumpet, flute and low whistle, electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, bass and drums. Here is a band where the arrangements are crucial, and some of the instruments are only used sparingly, which mean that from one song to the next the band can be quite different in their sound and approach. But, band leader Ivan Rozmainsky knows exactly what is needed for each piece, and maintains a continuity throughout. Much of the material being performed has yet to appear on an album, while others are older yet have also never been released in that format.

Musically the band they have most in common with, at least to my ears, is Karda Estra, as they bring together classical music and progressive rock so that a style is created that will appeal to fans of both areas. The largest difference between the two is that Ivan is firstly a pianist, and many of the songs rely on his delicate touch, while another significant difference is the use of trumpet. This is played as if it is being directed by an orchestral conductor as opposed to someone from the jazz scene, and the result is long notes that hit hard and pure, no sliding or strange stylings. Alexey Gorshkov has great breath control, and there is little sense of vibrato or strain, just clear sounds that take the music in a different direction. This brass feel is quite at odds with the flute and low whistle of Vladislav Korotkikh which is much warmer and friendly.

I have long been a fan of this Russian band, and each release cements that even more. I look forward to the next studio album to see what they do with some of the songs included here, and highly recommend this to anyone into the more orchestral style of progressive rock. As this is on Bandcamp, it is also possible to give this a listen before purchase, so why not give them a try?
