Prog Reviewer
4 stars AURORA was formed in 1976, featuring former members of HANDS, HIGH TIME OCTET and SHIVAS headband. Their music could be described as experimental instrumental progressive jazz-fusion. They never released any albums through their career that lasted until 1980. Three of the tracks on this CD were recorded at January Sound Studios 5/27/1977, while the other seven tracks were recorded live at January Sound Studios in 1977 for broadcast on KZEW-FM in Dallas. - The musicians are very skilled which is showed in the many highlights on this CD such as the opening "Opus 8", "Polyfolk Dance" and "Khartouhm". Their influences are John Coltrane, Chick Corea, Larry Coryell, Stockhausen and FRANK ZAPPA, while their music is reminiscent to MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA and NUCLEUS. I'm sure that if you like progressive jazz-fusion and the above mentioned bands and artists, you'll surely like this as well. Highly recommended!
