Fair Wind Pleases is a band from Russia formed at the beginning of 2020 in St. Petersburg and performing non-trivial instrumental music at the junction of neoclassical, avant-garde, ambient, progressive, post-jazz, chamber music, modern creative and other genres. In the sound of the group, the winds play the most important role, and its main goals are to generate positive energy and bring the spiritual dimension to everyday life. All these aspects are, to one degree or another, reflected in the name of the ensemble.

Some founders of the band Ivan Rozmainsky and Leonid Perevalov are known for their participation in such groups as  Roz Vitalis, Yojo, Rozmainsky & Mikhaylov Project (aka RMP), Total Station etc.

The more narrow definition of this band's style is instrumental Chamber Avant Prog / Post Jazz Fusion

Beyond the Seasons is the debut release by Fair Wind Pleases recorded live at the Sound Museum (Saint Petersburg, Russia) and digitally (and independently) released in April 2020.

This live album can be listened to and freely downloaded here:

Avant team is free to give their own opinion on this, but I'm not sure this is rock enough for us in general, not just JR/F.

It's quite lovely stuff, and while the Avant team does stray into the Chamber Rock area from time to time I's be surprised if this qualifies as it is more squarely in the neoclassical avant garde chamber music space. 

Anyway thanks for posting a lovely album. I'll pass it by the rest of our team.

Rejected by Avant because it lacks the prog element, but it's a very good album. Personally I like Roz Vitalis and Yojo a lot, this is just too "neo-classic" for the site, but it's excellent as almost all the outputs of the two mentioned bands.
