Sometimes their music can be hard to describe, though. It’s never hard to take. If you dig Stick playing, you really need to pick this up. It should be no surprise that it sounds a lot like King Crimson. It’s really a captivating disc that covers some great territory.

In 1989, Steps Ahead consisted of Mike Mainieri on MIDI vibraharp, synclavier and acoustic piano, the young saxophonist Bendik doubling on keyboards, guitarist Steve Kahn, Tony Levin on electric bass and Chapman stick, and drummer Steve Smith. The powerful band did not have a great deal of subtlety by this era, but it helped to keep the much-maligned genre of fusion alive, mixing the sound of rock with jazz improvising.

This 5- disc set came about as a result of the band's entire 90's studio back catalog going out of print. Bandleader and keyboardist Erik Norlander decided the best way to reissue those albums would be to remaster all 3 of the albums (their 1993 debut, EARTHBOUND; their 1995 sophomore effort, BRUTAL ARCHITECTURE; and their third album, 1999's OBLIVION DAYS), add on a disc of rerecordings from 2007, AND a DVD of candid studio footage dating from 1993-2007, an interview with Stick genius Emmett Chapman, and the 2007 Sessions plus interview segments all shot by HD film crews…

Texas is not quite the Mecca of progressive rock, but it is home to some fine musicians. Thirteen of Everything have actually been around for a while under various names and line-ups, but finally released their first album in 2005. Heavily influenced by Genesis, Yes and Gentle Giant, Thirteen of Everything put together a fine debut that showcases the individual talents of the members and gets their name on the prog map. They boast three vocalists, guitar, drums, keyboards and a Chapman Stick/bass/acoustic player. All the tools needed to create interesting and challenging music.
