Turquoise biography
It is merely the beautiful voice of Katarzyna Jajko and the Polish language that makes it QUIDAM alike. For the rest the band has its own sound. A high emotional value, a subdued mood, a crystal clear sound and a well balanced contribution of all the members of the band. Symphonic and orchestral progressive style instrumentals will certainly appeal to those who follow YES, YOU And I, and RENAISSANCE for example.

Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Another interesting discovery in the world of modern Polish Prog, Turquoise came from the town of Lesko in south-eastern Poland and appeared at the dawn of the millenium, featuring female singer Katarzyna Jajko along with guitarist Alexander Zelazny, drummer Marcin Zwonarz, bassist Sebastian Klus and keyboardist Marek Sokol.Their self-titled debut was released on Ars Mundi in 2002.

On their first effort Turquoise played melodic Neo Progressive Rock, typical of the style established by QUIDAM, with emphasis on the lyricism and the elaborate melodies.And the band had all the right elements to contribute something attractive to the scene: An excellent female vocalist with an ethereal and crystalline voice supported by melodic, sligthly symphonic and deeply atmospheric arrangements.The music is mostly smooth and dreamy with occasional stronger guitar riffing but the majority of this album is based on interesting solos, atmospheric synths and the changing moods created by the alternation between soft but vocal- heavy moments and secure instrumental themes.This way Turquoise manage to come up with a release full of memorable material without being accesible, taking care of any listener fond of albums with melodic content.

This is definitely an excellent album for all fans of modern Polish Prog in the vein of QUIDAM, ANAMOR, SATELLITE or MILLENIUM.But this is also a strongly recommended debut for all Progressive Rock fans, who love deep atmospheres over complexity...3.5 stars.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Turquoise is a polish progressive rock band that goes rather unnoticed in prog world, even in Poland they are almost unknown, with 3 albums released so far, they confirm with their second album relased in 2003 named Po Drugiej Stronie that they have talent . The duo female/male on this album is good and shows a mature orentation of the band into more deeper folky realms then before, but also combined with typical polish neo prog arrangements , not far from Quidam. This release has almost all ingredients to be a succesful album in this zone, good keyboards, acustic and more edgy guitar parts, beautiful and sensual female voice, specialy on Desiderata or Spotkanie with the excellent ending guitar solo, not far from almost prog metal attitude. In their roots Turqoise is a folk band, at least to my ears but combines so well the elements from this style with neo prog parts, that in the end the conclusion is , that doesn't matter in what genre are you puted the result is more then ok and even great in places. So, a pleasent album, not quite fantastic but most of the time pleasent , even I didn't catch any of the words spoken ore sung here. 3 stars , and on some parts maybe 3.5 . Fans of Quidam, Karnataka, Mostly Autumn or even Yes can listen to Turquoise without fear. Great cover art IMO.

Review by ClemofNazareth
Special Collaborator Prog Folk Researcher

3 stars Despite their very proggy-sounding name and some very beautiful and intricate album covers, Turquoise do (for the most part) not play a particularly progressive style of music, at least not here on their first album. What they do offer though is a pleasant enough sound that is fairly uncomplicated but well-played, energetic and inflected at times with just enough regional flair to qualify as prog folk. And there are a couple of notable exceptions to that statement that portend well for the band, most notably the extended pieces “Dajemma” and “Wez Zed Zobamnie”.

The one caveat to Turquoise’ music is that the vocals are all sung in Polish. That said, other languages have never been something to put off prog fans, and indeed many claim to not care about lyrics anyway so that shouldn’t dissuade anyone who doesn’t know Polish from enjoying their music. And the inclusion of the instrumental “Dajemma” with its lush electric guitar and keyboard arrangements will leave listeners wanting more.

The band will be inevitably compared to their fellow countrymen Quidam, and in the case of the guitar work this is a fair; however, Mostly Autumn or Karnataka would be more accurate comparisons. I’ve seen them likened to the Hungarian act You and I as well, another Mostly Autumn-influenced band. Like those artists, the guitars may qualify as neo, but the tone of the compositions and warm feminine vocals, as well as occasional ethnic nuances, place them more comfortably inside the world of neo- folk. The mini-epics “Strach” and “Wez Zed Zobamnie” provide the best examples of this, with the initial ranging electric guitar riffs giving way to Katarzyna Jajko’s lush voice and some pretty adept acoustic guitar fingering courtesy of Alexander Zelazny. I’m not sure why the band elected to wait until the end of the album to introduce this side of their sound; “Dajemma” hints at their ability to craft true progressive compositions, but one has to work through the more folksy numbers leading up to these two closing songs to really get at why they are considered progressive in the first place.

Another example of the softer side of the band’s music can be heard in the lazy To Co W Nas (Spelnienie), which manages to build just enough to provide an understated lift to what it basically a ballad as the song winds to a close. This is one of the better tunes on the album to represent the band’s overall signature sound, along with the less-pronounced and also softly executed short instrumental “Utrenja”.

Jajko left the group after this album for some reason, and would be replaced by a pair of female vocalists by the time the band released their second studio album. That one leans much closer to neo- prog in my opinion, and while the production is a bit more polished I also think the band lost a bit of their subtle charm, certainly not unusual in a sophomore effort. These two would be replaced by yet another woman vocalist on the band’s third effort, the 2007 release ‘Futura’. I haven’t heard that one yet but in reading various reviews it seems the band took a similar route to groups like Karnataka – away from prog folk and into more commercially-friendly neo territory.

So if you want to enjoy this band and are a die-hard folky, this is the album for you. Not a masterpiece or anything, but the band does manage to put together a pretty decent bit of music for your listening pleasure. I’m going to go with three stars here, although with a few more listens may come back and bump that up if the music reveals more depth than seems to be there for me at present. Well recommended to progressive folk fans, especially those who enjoy the genre’s rich ethnic and cultural variety.

peace

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

3 stars With their new, self produced, CD Turquoise is as far from prog folk as it can be. There is not a single acoustic guitar in the whole album. I don´t have their 2005 release, but Futura is very different from their debut self titled CD of 2002. Now they have a new singer and another keyboards player. The sound has almost nothing to do with their brilliant start. Ok, I think they were much more a neo prog group than anything else. Today the band still sounds pretty much neo, but the music is heavier, bordering sometimes the prog metal bounderies, but no quite. There are some eletronic and gothic elements here and there too. The last three tracks reminds me the softer side of bands like Within Temptation or Epica.

I really liked the CD, although Futura is a very short one, almost an EP (35 minutes in all). It is difficult to see what they´re aiming at with such little offering. But at least all the songs are good, varied, well played, show some personality and Martyna Srocka has a fine voice, strong and melodic at the same time. you can tell the musicians are skilled and the production is quite good. I really hope this band has found a style and keep on that track. I´m looking forward to hear their next release. Surely they have the chops and the talent to grow a lot more. Promising. 3,5 stars.

Review by tmoura

4 stars Wow! This is very good! Excelenet prog band! I was a little confused when I read they were a prog folk outfit where, upon hearing the CD, I think they're really closer to the neo prog nest. There are some nice acoustic parts but not as much as to classify them as folk. Well this may be relevant if you need to label it. For it's just plain good music as far as I know. What really stands out in the whole album is Katarzyna Jajko. Even in a country where it looks like every month or so it seems to surface a great band with an outstanding female lead singer, this one really shines! Her voice is soft, beuatiful and her singing is quite moving. The musicians help a lot, though. This band is a tight unit where their obviously great musicanship is used for the sake of the songs. No ego trips here. It seems everything works for the music itself and the instrumental breaks are as good as the singing parts. Very fine piece of great music that you enjoy from beginning to end. A nice surprise. Polland is delivering some of the best prog bands nowadays.
