3 stars Steven McCabe has been pursuing his musical path as Elegant Simplicity for more than twenty years now, sometimes solo, and sometimes with some guest musicians. This three track EP was released in 2014, and he brought in two different drummers to assist, but apart from that this short instrumental release is all Steven. Immediately before playing this for the first time I had been playing the 2014 remaster of his 2002 album 'Architect Of Light', and they are completely different entities altogether, with this being far more reflective and almost gentle in manner. Two of the pieces are just over four minutes in length, while opener "Enraptured I" just gets to ninety seconds. For fans of classic Camel, this release is a taster of the delights of what is now a comprehensive canon. I have known Steven since the days of his cassette releases (which I still have!), and I have yet to hear something of his that I don't like. His beautiful guitar solos, against perfectly balanced keyboards and piano, make this EP a delight
