4 stars Excellent, well played and full of intresting moments this first album named Void from 2011 of the italian band The RedZen. Progressive/jazz fusion is what they offer, but a fine one all the way. Formed in 2009 by guitarist Ettore Salati from The Watch and aswell member in Alex Carpani band he gather on his side anothert two members from The Watch + bass player. Musicaly speaking , VOid is almost in places spectacular to my ears, the musicianship is excellent, they play very easy on instruments, creating some great moments here. The opening track shows what potential this band has, with nice keyboards and overall atmosphere. Another highlight is Hot Wine and Into the void, very nice , with complex arrangements, nice breaks, tepo changes. All pieces are instrumental minus Alexa in the Cage who has voice but aswell has an instrumental version here. So, a very solid release that goes recommended for sure, the band exploring all the prog/jazz fusion realm and the resoult is quite impressive. Very nice cover art that goes hand in hand with the music. 4 stars easy.
