This instrumental project was born of our friendship and the same incurable and inextinguishable love of classical and progressive rock music. Between the two genres there exists a continuum of sound who can say where one ends and the other begins?

With this intention we have chosen some of the masterpieces of progressive rock music. Friends and family, Steve Hackett, Dave Jackson and Giorgio Gabriel, did us the honour of accepting our proposal to perform all the pieces in new, interesting ways. These are fresh interpretations, in a way close to the performance of classical music without drums and vocals.

The core of our idea is to give a place of honour to progressive rock music on the same level as the works of the great classical composers. Progressive rock lyrics have often drawn on elements of myth and fantasy, so we have also included some new pieces inspired by the literature of JRR Tolkien.
What more can we say? Listen and enjoy!
(Marco Lo Muscio, John Hackett and Carlo Matteucci)

Yes indeed - a follow up to 'Checking Out Of London Town' by Steve's brother John is now underway, which Nick is currently working with him on. The duo also feature (along with Steve himself) on this little-known potential gem: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=90350. Nick has also contributed recently to tracks recorded by Italian (ex-Mogador) bassist Poalo Pigny, and Canadian drummer/vocalist Eddie Zeeman: http://www.magnus-music.com/blogs.htm.
 
Here is a snatch of Steve, John and Roger King playing a short acoustic set at the 'Genesis Revisited II' launch event last month:
