Review: these guys have been playing progressive jazz rock since the late 60s, since before the term was coined. They were part of the same movement that also saw the birth of Pink Floyd. I saw them open for Hendrix. This disc shows they aren't slowing down.
If You Like: Return To Forever (with Al Di Meola), King Crimson
