4 stars Kabyokh is the second album released by Shalash Band, still consisting of two musicians, with composer and keyboardist Dmitry Karavaev being the leader. The new release includes only six tracks and lasts about 40 minutes, that is, it does not have time to get bored. Emerson's influence is still clearly felt, but at the same time, a stronger jazz bias can be noted, the sound in some moments has suddenly become dominated by the saxophone - or, to be correct, the wind controller. Perhaps the compositions have become more elaborated, especially in this regard, the opening track can be distinguished. The sound of the fifth track with a dominant piano stands out noticeably, here Emerson's "spirit" is especially noticeable. To all fans of keyboard-oriented progressive rock, I recommend listening to this album. This release is one of the important achievements of symphonic prog music from post-socialist countries for 2022.
