Guy LeBlanc is a Canadian keyboardist/organist famous from playin' in "Camel", his own band "Nathan Mahl" and "Mahl Dynasty" project. His plays jazz-rock music with many symphonic influences. Lots of Hammond, Moog & didigtal synths and pianos.
 
He recorded two albums:
 
"Subversia"(1999) (very similar to Nathan Mahl music recorded with collages from this band in fact)
"All the Rage" (2004) (much different album, lots of different influences, even harsh-growling in one song!. Recorded by Guy LeBlanc alone. He plays all instruments there)

There are bits of Jazz-Rock and Symphonic prog in the samples, but most of the music is a sort of easy-listening stuff. I'll notify the JRF team but don't get your hopes high on this one.

One of you guys would do mr. LeBlanc a service by uploading some of his better and representative pieces as full YouTube tracks, then Thumbs Up

In fact I've found these bands log time before. I just decided it's time for them to be included on PA until I have some more free time to post these suggestions. Now or never :-).

Any progress about this one?
It would be really strange if Guy LeBlanc famous from Nathan Mahl and Camel who also recorded 2 great  solo prog albums wasn't included on progarchives....

^ I think GLB deserves a place here too. Let's find out from Alex if the J/R/F Team reached a decision. I would be happy to take him to another genre team for evaluation if he is not approved

I don't know what happened with the suggestion, I'll try to look it up. It would be a pity to miss having a worthy prog act on PA just because of minor problems.

Guy Lebland should be put in the Cross over section, jazz rock section, prog metal, and progressive, he h fooled everyone by mixing the music styles.He is working on a third solo cd, maybe we will have a better opinion after that.Wink
