Sad Cypress
Ivory Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by kenethlevine
Special Collaborator Prog-Folk Team

2 stars When this German symphonic one-off was produced in 1979, keyboardist Ulrich Sommerlatte was 65 years old, which at the time was quite unheard of, given many of our heroes were still in their 20s. Now, in 2013, the first wave of prog artists who are still with us are in their 60s and we are ok with that. Oh the cruel irony!

"Sad Cypress" arrived too late to have a chance, with a retro sound even at the time, but I doubt whether they would have found much success 5 years earlier, because the sumptuous keys and arrangements are let down by coldly calculated compositions and an inexorable heaviness of heart. Even worse are the English vocals sung with a thick German accent that even I cannot tolerate, and I am usually most forgiving in that department. The worst of these are, unfortunately, on the album opener and nothing can wash it away once the first soupcon is flung forth. It also suffers from the most mawkish of lyrics, another area where I am normally lenient. Luckily, matters do improve on all fronts, but, as I implied, "At this very moment" shouldn't have made the cut, or should have been buried somewhere in the middle or end, preferably as a hidden track.

Not suprisingly, the best mustered here is instrumental. "Time Traveller" is quite lovely and reminds me of the more virile contemporaries ZOMBY WOOF. Two other long tracks, "The Great Tower" and "Barbara" boast more appealing passages and more of a balanced feel, where the keys seem almost whimsical at times, a worthwhile counterweight to the general seriousness. Most of the other pieces have their moments but in the end they add little fodder to the canon of late 1970s German symphonic rock that was still smoking heavily at the time, especially relative to what was transpiring in America and the UK.

This is recommended to those who enjoy that classic vintage keyboard "sound" of the period, but I doubt even its most devout apologists will endow it with classic status or regard it as valuable enough to poach.

Sad Cypress
Ivory Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by tbstars1

4 stars Excellent album - really enjoyable. Can't imagine why it has been categorised as psychedelic/space rock - this is classic symphonic prog from the 70s. Never easy (or particularly helpful) to cite influences since I am not inside the heart and soul of the band, so can't hope to know what they liked or listened to. However, whether consciously or not, many of the usual suspects are here: Genesis (most definitely), the Enid (but more playful), Spring, Strawbs, a bit of Mike Oldfield, Fantasy, even England....all in all, a feast for every lover of prog. Intricate, varied and altogether interesting musicianship, with perfectly acceptable vocals - (I think "silvertree" is unduly critical) - the songs move along nicely and well repay repeated listenings. This said, I am not too fond of "Incantation". Title track, "My Brother" and "Barbara" are undisputed gems.

Note of caution: the "follow up", Keen City, is totally unrelated and has no prog content at all. Some pleasant noodling but no more. Avoid.

Sad Cypress
Ivory Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

4 stars Ivory were a unique band in the sense of being led by a 65 years old musician.It was Ulrich Sommerlatte, a composer born in 1914 in Berlin, who was the conductor of the Hannover Symphony Orchestra at the very young age of 22.Sommerlatte worked for the most of his career as a composer for film soundtracks and radio broadcasts, before listening to Classic 70's Prog and started experimenting with its sound.He formed Ivory in 1976 along with his son, also keyboardist, Tomas.Ivory featured also Christian Mayer on vocals/guitars, Goddie Daum also on guitars, bassist Charly Stechl and Fredrik Rittmüller behind the drum kit.Their debut ''Sad cypress'' was released in 1979 on Jupiter Records.

''Sad cypress'' was no less than excellent, attractive and clever 70's influenced Symphonic Rock in the vein of GENESIS and YES with dominant keyboard and guitar parts and great instrumental passages.Both the long and short tracks are complex, melodic and balanced with some beautiful organ runs and magnificent moog synthesizers workouts, while Mayer and Daum have both a sensitive HACKETT-ian touch on their guitars.Mayer was also responsible for the nice vocal work in the style of PETER GABRIEL.Lots of smooth interplays, plenty of dramatic instrumental passages, dreamy keyboard atmospheres, intense lyricism and series of sudden breaks guarantee a listening close to the best of the Classic Prog tradition.Hints of GENTLE GIANT's more accesible forms are also obvious throughout the listening.

Both Musea Records and Belle Antique have re-issued the album, which now features four bonus tracks recorded between 1983 and 1987.Sommerlatte seems not to have run out of interesting ideas with Ivory's style now being closer to the likes of British Neo Prog but still with an excellent demanding sound.The sound recalls acts like early IQ and ABEL GANZ, being a bit more synth-based with some Electronic touches here and there but deeply rooted in 70's progressive music with melodic guitar work, symphonic arrangements and warm, sensitive vocals.These tracks make the purchase of the CD format of the album really essential.

If you are after innovative, ground-breaking and trully experimental Prog just skip by.But if you are a fan of vintage GENESIS-influenced Progressive Rock and a lover of trully intricate arrangements this one deserves to reach your hands.Not very original music but definitely among the best albums of the style.

Ivory Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

3 stars 'Sad Cypress' provides songs in a symphonic/neo prog vein ... technically rather prolific and the same applies to the compositional aspect by the way. Although they are partially peering hard at bands like Genesis, Camel, Eloy or the early Marillion this is quite original overall. Okay, a bunch of bands with a similar stylistical attitude existed at that time. So does this really arouse a great deal of interest? The line-up does at any rate. Here we have Ulrich Sommerlatte aboard, born 1914 (and gone in 2002). Originally being a trained music composer with the focus on popular and classical arrangements he started to experiment with prog and electronic music at the age of 65! Astonishing, however apparently not too late.

So consequently he founded the band IVORY three years later together with his son Thomas and was responsible for the compositions.on top of it. Respect! When I started to listen some associations came up immediately ... Steve Hackett adopted guitars, vocals are getting close to Peter Gabriel as well as Fish here and there. The skimped opener At This Very Moment sums this all up. But the smell of rehash dissolves over the course of time. There is a focus on a dreamy atmosphere, Eloy's Ocean flavour shimmers through all over. Less powerful rocking impressions, surely due to Ulrich Sommerlatte's longtime experiences in other territories. In Hora Ultima shows some vocals in Latin.

The tricky title track with lively drums and synths and the 14 minute epic My Brother are the most challenging tracks in my opinion. The original vinyl had been released on a German Schlager label by the way, later digitally re-issued by Musea amongst others, enhanced with four bonus tracks recorded between 1983 and 1987. They are following in their steps here, with a stronger classical touch though. And the keyboard work is less vintage flavoured, more infiltrated with modern electronical elements.

Overall this album is a nice, more relaxed workout by IVORY, which was situated in Munich by the way - unique but also showing some distinct references, entertaining in any case. Christian Meyer's vocals are pleasant ... and so typical due to this slight German accent. Guitars are rarely placed, so much the more 'Sad Cypress' is spiked with excellent lush keyboard/synth work, provided by father and son Sommerlatte. Who is keen on that will be well served by an overlap in the vein of those aforementioned bands. 3.5 stars

2 stars Basic symphonic progressive Genesis influenced band. The music is quite good but why, just why does the singer sing in English ? Especially when he pronounces the letter 'w' as a 'v'. Imagine ! This is simply awful. I just can't get over it. The only good tracks are the instrumentals and In Hora Ultima where the lyrics are latin ! The last two tracks are bonus and not as interesting.

Review by Marcelo
Prog Reviewer

4 stars An underrated German band, whose only album is another excellent shot of symphonic rock plenty of changes and melodical richness, really complex and elaborated.

IVORY music is obviously influenced by GENESIS, but it isn't a copy or a clone, even when vocalist (he sings in English) reminds Peter Gabriel style. There are nine songs, but each one includes a sort of "mini-song" inside, with excellent keyboards and very nice melodies. "In Hora Ultima" and "My Brother" are the highlights, but all tracks are in the same quality line.

"Sad Cypress" is a highly recommended album for those who like '70s symphonic rock in the traditional vein. And one particularity: Keyboardist Ulrich Sommerlatte had 65 years old when "Sad Cypress" was released.
