Review: Stellar prog jazz rock. Jevtovic has been compared to many legendary guitarists. He is quite impressive technically and artistically & his growth as a composer shows a high level of sophistication. Guitar & keyboards work excellently & the drummer works his magic in a subdued way. The result is a bass-less power trio with taut performances that defy genre identification.
If You Like: Robert Fripp, Tony Iommi, Alan Holdsworth, Soft Machine
