3 stars This band should definitively have more recognition on this site.

This is pure and mellow jazz-fusion with a very present Canterbury flavour (hear those keyboards!). I even find this album to be comparable to Soft Machine's Fifth and/or Six and some Phil Miller solo works, not my favourite music but very nice to hear for sure. In fact, there are several moments of improvisation and free jazz arrangements scattered along the album, like the sax on the first track, the drum improvisation on the second one or the Phil Miller-like guitar on the first minutes of the third track, that I'm sure fans of the bands I mentioned will find enjoyable.

My only issue with this kind of music is the absence of memorable lines, that is why I only give it three stars.
