I only have their album Modern Times but also had saw them live in Barcelona in the 80's, great band with a very personal sound thanks to the prominent vibraphone of Mike Mainieri.
Definitely great J-R/F although on the softer side of things, sometimes bordering a bit cheesy.

Very nice and smooth. S'got that cool cat 80s vibe about it, though completely unlike Kenny G. From what I've heard on YouTube, it's first with the second album that a real "rock" vibe comes into the mix. Reminds me A LOT of Pekka Pohjola's Jokamies album from around the same time. I'm not entirely sure about actual prog credentials though, but I reckon an eval is in order. I'll swing this by the jazzy cornerSmile

The JRF team doesn't use progfreak.
