Darryl Way biography
UK composer, violinist and keyboardist Darryl WAY (b. 1948) is best known for being a founding member of legendary act Curved Air. He's been a permanent member of that act in several brief periods - 1969-72, 1974-76, 1990 - and from 1998 and onwards his tenure appears to have become more stable.

In between his first tenures in Curved Air he formed a second band, Wolf, who issued three albums prior to disbanding in 1974. Following the second period with Curved Air a solo career was the next step for Way. So far this has resulted in three official productions: Concerto for Electric Violin (1978), The Human Condition (1987) and Under the Soft (1991). In addition he's been involved in a variety of classical music productions over the years, many of which have been either released or sorted under his name.

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

2 stars Considering his respectable career as a member of CURVED AIR and as the leader of WOLF, the electric violinist Darryl Way's solo output seems to be rather disappointing. This new album is the first one I hear, and at first I thought that his other albums can't be this bad and so far from prog, but after reading the very few reviews here I see I was simply expecting too much. My confused first reaction is partly explained also by the fact that originally the album's performance info in this page contained only the electric violin. Sadly the songs are very poppy and vocal-oriented, full of kitchy synths and the horrible drum programming! It's true that the leaflet doesn't prepare the listener for anything like that, quite the contrary. Darryl Way writes: "In this album I have tried to recreate the spirit of experimentation that led to the 'Progressive Rock' movement of the late 60s and early 70s." Ha.

False expectations aside. And better just accept that this music has nearly nothing to do with prog, despite his bold words. First off, his voice is actually nice. He reminds a lot of JOHN WETTON, whose vocals I have always liked. But being technically somewhat weak and slightly nasal, the vocals don't work so well on all tracks, they're indeed very far from Wetton's capacity. The best song-writing comes early in the album. The sound then, it would be very enjoyable - what else with a lovely electric violin in sight - if there weren't that phoney programmed stiffness. Why, oh why?

'Fire With Fire' features pretty female guest voice of Rosie (Rosie who??). A welcome change, as well as the peaceful instrumental version of the traditional tune 'Lagan Love', and another instrumental, beautifully orchestrated 'Sergey' - probably an hommage to Rachmaninoff? The majority of the 55- minute, 12-track album proceeds harmlessly in Soft Rock / Easy-Listening / Celtic-influenced pop, with an 80's-like hollow production. The closing track 'Sergey' is a clear highlight, if you enjoy classical music and shamelessly romantic Easy-Listening such as SECRET GARDEN from Norway.

There is some art music flavour elsewhere too, but combined with the synthetic pop approach it becomes Kitch. The worst example is 'Don't Look Back' that citates Pachelbel's Canon. Hooked On Classics -kind of infantile Super Market crossover. Sad to say this of an album with great-sounding electric violin, but I don't think any advanced friend of classically influenced prog would find this album very good. (Well, someone has rated this a masterpiece...)

Review by SMSM

5 stars The reason I give this 5 stars is I have never heard violin played more beautiful.

If prog violin means playing something intricate and hard to play one of those difficult Paganni pieces that Ywiyne J Malsteam, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and other guitar shredders and their albums are a found of playing, and full of such tunes, this is not one of these recordings.

Rather, think of the Lark Ascending by Vaughan Willams or even some other Paganni pieces where it is often more difficult to play one note than 50 to a 100 and still get a great emotion out of it,. then this recording is for you.

Combined with brillant backup from Pete Haycock Stewart Copeland and Diesal Martin, you could basically consider to have a classical masterpiece, since many prog recording are classically based, such is my reasoning

Collaborator Errors & Omissions Team

3 stars Ultra Violins (2013) is an ok collection of classical songs performed by ex Curved Air and ex Wolf Darryl Way.

The album was released in the mid of 2013 and brings 9 tracks and also 3 multimedia sections that you can see on your computer.

The songs on the album were well choosen and Darryl's violins is quite accurate and incendiary. But the backing tracks are not that good indeed. Especially in the version of 'Vivaldi' from his old band Curved Air (from their first album Air Conditioning from 1970), where the electronic outfit is just ridiculous.

All in all is a nice album for people who likes classical music hybrids, But attention, there's absolutelly NO Prog Rock here. Don't say you weren't warned!

3 stars Where have I heard this before?

That's what consistantly comes to mind when I hear this album. Not that it's bad. Darryl Way is to fine a musician for the album to be a complete waste. But from the opening track, where the melody is vaguely reminiscent of Japan's Gentlemen Take Polariods, to And The Walls Came Tumbling Down (a title that suggest a song nowhere near as placid as this one is) that sounds like some song by, of all people, The Carpenters, at times, when it's not sounding like Way's Vivaldi, to Crocodile Tears that has passages that sound like the theme song from the TV series "S.W.A.T.", to Allegro Vivace that once more recalls Vivaldi, it just seems like Way is borrowing from too many sources.

But the album is still good. Way is a good violinist (not one of my favorites, but he is no slouch), and his choice of Stewart Copeland on drums helps build the sound. The album is a set of interesting instrumentals, that makes the game of "spot the reference" entertaining.

The Human Condition (with Opus 20)
Darryl Way Crossover Prog

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

3 stars In the nineteen eighties, Virgin Records introduced the sublabel Venture Records, which featured light classical, jazz, ambient and experimental music, including a number of favorites from this site (Robert Fripp, David Sylvian, Bill Bruford, Bian Eno, Holger Czukay among many others). This album was, as far as I know, the sole release from Curved Air's Darryl Way on this label.

The album is a light classical piece, with Way on solo violin, in front of a string orchestra, called Opus 20, along with a piano player and percussionist. The piece, while not spectacular, is not bad. Way avoids the hyper experimentalism that dominated late 20th century orchestral music, and focuses more on melodies. His orchestration is full and lush, giving the music a similar feeling to some of Aaron Copland's more popular works.

At times, especially with drums, Way's rock background peeks through, but he manages to keep that contained well.

It's a pleasant album to listen to, especially if you are not expecting a rock album.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
