Lapis Lazuli biography
Founded in Canterbury, UK in 2010

LAPIS LAZULI are an jazz rock group from Canterbury, Kent, and as of 2019 having as main members Adam BRODIGAN, Luke MENNIS, Dan LANDER and Neil SULLIVAN among others. The group can be considered a part of a wider Canterbury scene in geographic sense, with sharing one of the members with groups like BOOT LAGOON and supporting live acts like SYD ARTHUR and CARAVAN. They are inspired in part by jazzier sound of Canterbury scene but often fused in a contemporary way with genres like funk, afrobeat and others; therefore they can be recommended to fans of psychedelic jazz rock, but depending on the song and album, also lighter nu jazz groups like SNARKY PUPPY for example.

Lapis Lazuli Jazz Rock/Fusion

Review by Zeropikinz

5 stars Why did no one on the prog-archives bother to write a review of this great album ? People you haven't listened to it yet? But you've lost a lot !!! Be sure to check out the work titled,, brain,, by any means possible. This release of 2018 is for me the best work of the band Lapis Lazuli* out of the six already released . ( but how often great musicians choose ridiculous names* for themselves....but this is my bad opinion).It all starts with a cool cover, which probably conveys the essence of what the musicians offered us. And so this is the most excellent fifty-minute instrumental prog - jazz - rock-Canterbury-psychedelia (with unconditional funk interspersed ) a journey performed in the format of a quartet ...but how ! Two eccentric guitars (one of them periodically simulates synthesizers ! and these synth parts are great and remind Canterbury of themselves in all their weird and slyly humorous glory ). The bass guitar is very different, as are the percussion instruments. All five compositions are full of various non-banal changes of themes and great memorable passages. The mood of the compositions is full of some strange mocking and cunning.... but at the same time, there are also dark and brooding instrumental themes . I listened to this album more than a dozen times, and always found something new for myself (but every time I was I was filled with a music lover's high!). My rating is five stars!
Thanks to historian9 for the artist addition.
