Jeremy biography
JEREMY is a one-man band, and his vocal-less mix of vintage progressive instruments layered to create a wash of melodic sonic textures is quite tasty, and evokes the best of CAMEL, Steve HACKETT, or other mellower prog gems. After two eclectic recordings between rock, pop, Californian melodic rock and Progressive rock, JEREMY changes the style and plays here a refined Progressive influenced by Anthony PHILLIPS and a bit in the same way as JETHRO TULL or GRYPHON.

Regarded by many as a symphonic/progressive rock masterpiece, "Pilgrim's Journey" will appeal to fans Anthology PHILLIPS, Steve HACKETT, Mike OLDFIELD and GANDALF.

3 stars In 1996 Jeremy Morris re-released his guitar-oriented album ''Invisible'' on CD, after having pressed it on cassette in 1990, and the following year he returns with a second album on Kinesis, ''Celestial city''.This time he was helped by Mark Morris on drums, synths and piano, the rest of the instrumental armour was handled by Jeremy himself.

From the dreamy, fairytale cover of ''Pilgrim's journey'' we come to this one, which is much more spacey, additionally the keyboard duties of Mark Morris showcase a slight stylistical turn by Jeremy on this album.It's again another all instrumental work, but this time refered as balanced ''between TANGERINE DREAM and CAMEL''.I definitely confirm this statement.''Celestial city'' is the perfect title for a work full of orchestral electronics and multi-layered, cosmic synthesizers, that won't travel alone, they are always accompanied by Jeremy Morris' soft and emotional touch on guitar and the marching drums of Mark.The result is somewhere between EM and Neo Prog with certain retro vibes, PINK FLOYD are another group to spring to mind listening to this album.Beautiful compositions, rather lacking flexibility, but offering lots of amazing electronic backdrops, well-arranged synthetic soundscapes and brilliant guitar tones in the vein of Andy Latimer, David Gilmour and Steve Hackett, quite often having a slight Neo-Classical aura.This one sounds even pretty cosmic and fairly cinematic at moments, maybe even more compared to Jeremey's previous albums and, while being more of a trippy experience into atmospheric soundscapes, more bombastic passages are not absent either.

Great composer this Jeremy Morris.A sufficient mix of electronic and spacey textures with more classic, progressive sounds.Cathartic music, warmly recommended.

Journey to the Center of the Heart
Jeremy Crossover Prog

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

— First review of this album —
4 stars US artist JEREMY has released albums as Jeremy and Jeremy Morris since the early 1980's, and has a back catalog so extensive that it dwarfs the output of artists with a much longer pedigree with his more than 50 studio productions. "Journey to the Center of the Heart" belongs somewhere in the final quarter of that history, and was released in 2009 through Jeremy's own label JAM Recordings.

Jeremy Morris has explored a great number of different types of music on his more than 50 full length albums so far, and in the case of "Journey to the Center of the Heart" it's the type of music generally classified as power pop that is at the heart of the proceedings. Energetic, short songs that reference 60's and 70's bands such as The Beatles, The Who and ELO fairly often, with psychedelic guitar soloing and clever use of keyboards and Mellotron as recurring elements flavoring the songs. A well made album of its kind, and one well worth acquiring if you tend to enjoy music of this kind.

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars US artist JEREMY has released albums as Jeremy and Jeremy Morris since the early 80's, and has a back catalog so extensive that it dwarfs the output of artists with a much longer pedigree, and one that tends to hold a consistently high quality at that. "Kingdom Come" dates back to 2002, and was released through Jeremy's own label JAM Records.

Instrumental landscapes of an ambient nature is what Jeremy's 2002 album "Kingdom Come" is all about, with references to artists such as Gandalf and to some extent Tangerine Dream for the most electronic dominated parts of the contents, but where the greater majority of the landscapes explored contain acoustic or psychedelic elements that in sum makes this production one not directly comparable to those fairly well known providers of ambient and electronic landscapes respectively. Sophisticated ambient music with psychedelic and pastoral elements is probably the best way for me to summarize my impressions about this CD, especially if the word sophisticated is used in this context as well. And if that sounds like compelling music for you, I suspect you'll find much to enjoy on this disc.

Pilgrim's Journey
Jeremy Crossover Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars The prolific trip of Jeremy Morris through the music world continues in 1994, when he released the album ''Faithful and true'', a so-called tribute to the sound of The Byrds, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel and other Psych/Pop idols of the 60's.He returns to his progressive influences the following year.Morris signs a deal with the US label Kinesis and releases the album ''Pilgrim's journey'', only helped by drummer Dave Dietrich.

Jeremy's sound developed into a dreamy and atmospheric Neo/Symphonic Prog in this album, where his true love for the works of STEVE HACKETT, ANTHONY PHILLIPS, MIKE OLDFIELD and the exceptional style of GENESIS come in evidence.An endless source of inspiration and creation, Jeremy displays here 74 minutes of all instrumental, melodious music with stronger symphonic tendencies compared to ''Dreams come true'', maybe close to the sound of CHANCE, TEMPUS FUGIT and THE FOUNDATION, containing lots of synthesizers and crying guitar solos, downtempo ethereal soundscapes and some lovely contrasts between acoustic and electric explorations.Links with the British Prog sound of the 80's are also more than evident, while the album obtains offer a tendency towards Electronic Music during the grandiose, synth-drenched movements.No matter the length of the track, the music is well-composed, very emotional, sometimes changing from dramatic themes with the guitar in the forefront to more romantic stylings with ambiental keyboards.Of course the most risky bet here is the closing 25-min. title-track, which comes close to the sound of KEN BAIRD, a great combination of sound effects, symphonic Electronic Music and atmospheric guitar textures in the vein of MIKE OLDFIELD and STEVE HACKETT.

Jeremy is a dedicated fan of Classic Prog and ''Pilgrym's journey'' is the strongest proof.Nice product of instrumental, very melodic and cinematic Progressive Rock with symphonic flourishes.Warmly recommended.

Searching for the Son
Jeremy Crossover Prog

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Multinational project JEREMY & PROGRESSOR is a collaboration between US composer and musician Jeremy Morris, a highly productive and prolific artist who has somewhere around 50 albums to his name, and Uzbekistan composer and musician Vitaly Menshikov, arguably best known for being the driving force of this very website, but also a musician who has a handful of releases to his name in bands and collaborations. Following "The Pearl of Great Price" from 2005, "Searching for the Son" is the second collaborative effort Jeremy and Vitaly have made together. Just like its predecessor, it was also released through the Russian label MALS Records.

Jeremy & Progressor is a collaboration that has a lot to offer to progressive rock fans with a fairly broad taste of music made in the genre, and especially those who have a general fascination for music of this kind with an emphasis on both the symphonic and the psychedelic oriented parts of the art rock genre. There is a need, or perhaps a prerequisite, to be the kind of person who does want to invest a fair bit of time to get under the skin of a production to be truly able to enjoy this disc, but if you are such a person and you have a taste in music as described I suspect you'll conclude that "Searching for the Son" is a production worth spending time on, even if not at once.

Searching for the Son
Jeremy Crossover Prog

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars The last time that Jeremy Morris released an album with Progressor (Vitaly Menshikov) was back in 2005 when they joined forces for 'The Pearl of Great Price', so it has taken them a while to get back together, but given Jeremy's recording output probably that isn't too surprising. They both provide different instrumentation, while Jeremy provides the vocals, but there are also a few other musicians involved, notably John 'Rabbit' Bundrick. I was playing his superb 'Moccasin Warrior II' album just the other day, so it was interesting to find him on here. I was asked to provide a much more detailed review on this album, something that I very rarely undertake just due to the amount of music I listen to and the time I have to write about it, but given that Jeremy and I have known each other for some twenty years why not? In fact, I finally got all my cassettes out the other day, and still have 'Green', 'Soul Saver' and 'Dreams Come True' from all those years ago! One never knows quite what to expect from Jeremy in terms of what style will be in place on each release, but this is mostly songs with vocals, Christian lyrics, and a musical style that is reminiscent of the last Sixties.

Searching for the Son (8:07) Gentle bubbling keyboards lead way into a solid dose of psychedelic progressive pop, as the chords become more strident and the full band comes in. Dreamy, atmospheric and evocative, the addition of saxophone onto this track definitely gives it even more power and emphasis while the slightly strained guitar also brings back memories of a time gone by.

Future Flight (7:44) Gently picked guitar, and delicate mellotron combine with some 'spacey' sounds to lead us into another number that could have come straight from the end of the Sixties. Picked guitar and a driving bass leads us through a number that swirls, shifts and changes throughout.

The Blind Man's Dream (6:53) Layered keyboards and gentle 12-string slowly introduces to some phased distorted guitar, as the guys gradually kick into one of the heaviest numbers on the album. There is a real edginess to this one, with plenty of guitar soloing, and although it is only seven minutes long it contains many distinct musical sections, with the repeated lyrics and themes returned to nearer the end. Throughout, the keyboards act as a bedrock for the guitars to do very much their own thing, with more than a hint of later-period Beatles.

Distant Light (10:28) Lots of clarinet-style keyboards on this number gives it quite a different feel, as does the use of gently strummed acoustic guitar. But, as with others, this number has multiple sections, and when it starts to drive along there is a much greater impact due to the softness of what has gone before.

Wings of the Wind (11:16) The longest song on the album, this also has multiple sections, and brings in loads of different musical elements trumpet combining with electric piano at one point, with distorted guitars all adding to a very jazzy feel. In fact, it seems quite chaotic at times, very different to the more structured and laid-back feel of much of the album. But what really makes this for me is the wonderfully delicate piano that comes in and out throughout the song, and closes it out as a solo. There is wonderful touch and emotion contained within those notes.

Messiah Will Come (7:09) This starts as a far more orchestral piece with layers of synth strings, and some real trumpet, before it moves into a more psychedelic number led by some jangly guitar. Bill Morris' trumpet is again an important factor in this song, before guitar and keyboards dominate with some wonderful interplay.

Had Enough (4:34) This is one of three totally solo Jeremy songs on the album, and is the most poppy/psych of everything. A repeated chorus line gets into the mind and stays there, and there is a distinct groove and underlying emotional current that makes this a real joy to play time and again.

Way to Zion (6:01) A total contrast to what preceeded it, here we have a number that again is very orchestral in style, and it takes quite a while for the vocals to kick in, so much so that the first time I played it I wondered if it was going to be an instrumental. In many ways this reminds me of Gryphon, with synth instrumentation taking the place of the real thing.

The Mirror (6:29) The next Jeremy solo song is based much more on his vocals with gently picked guitar for accompaniment, with delicate keyboards providing some accents. This is quite an uplifting number, with less layering of the vocals and therefore more cut through.

On A Cherub (5:23) The final Jeremy solo finds multi-layered vocals on top of picked guitar, with delicate mellotron for support, before some phasing takes place that moves the music in and out. There is some fine jangly guitar soloing on this piece, as prog and psychedelia combine.

Sonic Dances (4:05) Vitaly provides the final song, apparently recorded back in 1993. Multi- layered acoustic guitar picking gives us a closing number that is musically quite at odds with the rest of the album, but somehow is a fitting final piece as it rounds it off nicely.

So there you have it, 78 minutes long, mixing lots of different influences together in a way that is enjoyable and fun to play. The final words must go to J&P, as on the booklet it states "Repeated listens required: Don't even try to dig it upon the first spin!" So there you are.

— First review of this album —
4 stars US composer and musician JEREMY is one of the more productive artists I have encountered over the years. With dozens of solo albums and a plethora of side projects of various kinds he tends to release or participate on several releases each and every year. "Love Explosion" dates back to 2012, and was released on the Spanish label Rock Indiana.

"Love Explosion" is an album of two halves and the odd one out, the first half staying put in a psychedelic rock and power pop oriented landscape and concluding with a garage rock inspired creation, while the second one transports us to landscapes with something more of a classic pop-rock oriented expression. Well made and well performed throughout, and I'd suspect that those who enjoy the likes of The Beatles, Electric Light Orchestra and Tom Petty should be something of a key audience, especially those who like all three of those.

3 stars US composer and musician JEREMY has been and still is a highly visible presence in the US rock scene, making a name for himself among fans of what is often described as power pop as well as psychedelic rock first and foremost. Since his official debut album in 1982 he has released a score of albums as a solo artist in addition to various band and project involvements. "The Solar King" dates back to the start of 2013 according to the CD copyright notice, and was released through Jeremy's own Jam Recordings label.

Fans of Jeremy Morris can safely add "The Solar King" to their list of albums that warrant a purchase. While the music he made back 30 odd years ago isn't the same as the one he makes today, the music comes across as familiar and is generally well made and performed. While the compositions arguably lack the edge Jeremy would develop later on, there's plenty to enjoy still, at least if you're a dedicated fan. Those with a fascination for artists active back in the early 80's who made music with clear inspiration drawn from 70's progressive rock should also find this production to be of interest, but as far as I regard this album, dedicated fans are the ones who will find this CD to be most rewarding.

Review by Windhawk

— First review of this album —
4 stars US composer and musician JEREMY (Morris) has been an active and prolific artist since the early 80's, releasing dozens of albums as a solo artist in addition to a vast array of collaborative productions and side projects, spanning a number of different stylistic expressions. "Guitar Heaven" dates back to 2011, and was released through Jeremy's own label Jam Recordings.

Among Jeremy's many studio albums over the years, "Guitar Heaven" represents those among them with arguably more of a limited appeal. It is a very well made and performed production, there's no doubt about that, but it's overall appeal will be to a finite crowd. If you love guitar albums in general and emotional, fairly gentle ones, only featuring acoustic guitars in particular, then chances are good that this is a CD that should intrigue you from the get go.

3 stars Jeremy Morris has released well in excess of 50 albums now, but this is the one that should have been the first but has only just been made available. Released on 12/12/12, this contains recordings that were made by Jeremy with his brother Mike on drums between 1980 and 1982. Originally destined to be his debut release, it was shelves after Mike lost interest in the project and some thirty years after the fact Jeremy has revisited the tapes and cleaned them off and made them available. Interestingly the comments are that they have been remastered, no comment at all about re-recording so it appears that these are as they were. Also, unless the original idea was to release a double album I am instead of putting together the album as it would have been back then Jeremy has instead chosen the best of the recordings as the CD is over an hour long.

What immediately strikes the listener is that it doesn't sound as if it some young guys just starting out. Remember, this wasn't a full band, as while Mike provided the drums Jeremy was singing, playing guitar, bass and keyboards so there would have been a lot of multi-tracking going on. Also, this is definitely very much Jeremy as we now know him as opposed to an amateurish project. In fact, when I played this the first time I hadn't read the CD booklet and the only thing that really struck me as strange is that not only was there a very long song included, but also that there are times when Jeremy seems much more in love with his guitar than usual with some rock soloing and power chords. I had thought that he was moving in a different direction (again), not realizing that this was how it all started.

Very much a Christian album, this fits in more with his power pop/rock style than that of his prog ventures, but yet again this is an album that those who enjoy his music will want to discover, and if you enjoy The Byrds with plenty of psych and melodic harmonies then this is for you.
