Brother Ape is a very fine act consisting of four very talented as well as skilled musicians. Stefan Damicolas (vocals, guitars), who is writing most of the material with all tracks arranged together with the rest of the band, Peter Dahlstrom (vocals, bass, keyboards), Gunnar Maxén (bass, keyboards, vocals) and Max Bergman (drums, percussion). Musically their sound is a unique blend of progressive rock and fusion. At times chord changes are somewhat in the vein of 70's fusion bands such as Weather Report or Brand X, but performed with quite heavy, but also kind of sophisticated guitars rather than 70's keyboard sounds. They've also got one foot in the more traditional progressive rock style with Saga, Yes, Rush and maybe also some A.C.T influences with the end result creating an original yet accessible sound of their own. Dashes of Zappa's rockier style can also be found in their music.
It was hardly a surprise that the follow-up to M's debut album didn't contain a song as groundbreaking as "Pop Muzik" – or a tune that was anywhere near as big a hit as his one and only global chart-topper. Instead of trying to duplicate that near-perfect slice of electro, M (aka Robin Scott) veered off in several directions, exploring a slightly rockier sound as well as a fair amount of experimental noodling.
Ettore Gracis achieves a milestone here in the disparate work that is probably Malipiero's finest dramatic effort. What's astonishing is that this is a live recording. The performance standard of the Fenice company is extraordinary which means you turn your attention to the emotion-wrenching drama of the opera where you're not conscious of the technique. Malipiero was highly-original, quirky, eccentric, and inspired all at once. There's been no one ….a customer @ amazon.com
Back in 1988, Danny Martinez and brothers, Joe and Rob Marone, came together to create the rock band, CAUGHT IN THE ACT (CITA). Soon after, they were joined by Anthony Trujillo. Because of the musical talents of each member, CAUGHT IN THE ACT was able to release its debut album in 1995, titled, “Relapse of Reason”. The band won critical acclaim and was subsequently signed to MTM MUSIC courtesy of MTM founders, Mario Lehmann and Magnus Soderkvist.
While earlier albums show LE ORME's masterity in composing great Symphonic Prog pieces for ELP-like trio, they never fall into bombastic category - LE ORME are Italians and they care for MELODIES first!!! This one is pure brilliance - melodies and emotions. No bombastic keyboards at all - acoustic guitars, violas and pianos…
