Steven Wilson: Maintaining Momentum with Transience & 4 1/2

Read "Steven Wilson: Maintaining Momentum with Transience & 4 1/2" reviewed by John Kelman

He is undeniably one of the hardest working men in music. In addition to ongoing work as surround sound and new stereo remixer for bands including King Crimson, Yes, Jethro Tull, XTC, Hawkwind, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Tears for Fears, Simple Minds, Roxy Music and Caravan, with more groups being added on a regular basis, Steven ...

Taylor's Universe: Kind of Red

Read "Kind of Red" reviewed by Dave Wayne

Danish multi-instrumentalist Robin Taylor is something of a musical polymath who's recorded extensively in a number of disparate musical arenas, including free improvisation (with his group Taylor's Free Universe), hard rock (with Art Cinema), electronic soundscapes, and jazz-rock fusion. With Kind of Red, Taylor's stylistic focus is firmly in the general area of instrumental progressive rock.

Elephant9: Live at the BBC

Read "Live at the BBC" reviewed by John Kelman

Despite the re-emergence of vinyl as a once-again acceptable medium, it's still bigger in some countries than others. In Norway, there are now labels that are releasing vinyl-only editions, including the intrepid Rune Grammofon, which introduced its The Last Record Company a couple years back, with limited-run albums including guitarist Stian Westerhus' Galore (2009) and equally ...

Steven Wilson
Corona Theatre
Montreal, Canada
November 15, 2011
For many of the mid-Baby Boomer era, the gateway drug to jazz was progressive rock. That's not to suggest that the more structured and, some might say, bombastic environs of late 1960s/early 1970s groups like Yes or Emerson, Lake and Palmer had a whole ...

Roine Stolt and Neal Morse: Degrees of Separation

Read "Roine Stolt and Neal Morse: Degrees of Separation" reviewed by John Kelman

2011 has been a banner year for progressive rock, the genre that emerged in the late 1960s, peaked in the mid 1970s, and was threatened with extinction (certainly from a commercial perspective) with the advent of punk and new wave. Of course, prog never went away, and the music of seminal bands such as King Crimson, ...

P.F.M.: Cook (Expanded Deluxe Edition)

Read "Cook (Expanded Deluxe Edition)" reviewed by John Kelman

Wrapping up Esoteric Recordings' ambitious, thorough and definitive reissue series of Premiata Forneria Marconi's 1970s English-language releases on Emerson, Lake and Palmer's Manticore label, the Italian progressive rock group's sole commercial live recording from the time, Cook (1975), gets a facelift and significant upgrade. The original release was marred by poor sound and energetic but sloppy ...

Carl Palmer: Working Live - Volume 3

Read "Working Live - Volume 3" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Volume 3 represents the third chapter of celebrated drummer Carl Palmer's reinventions of past group works, including Emerson, Lake and Palmer (ELP). His technical gifts are legendary, and with this live recording, the drummer instills a distant relative viewpoint of routes previously traversed.

On the ELP favorite “Bitches Crystal," guitarist Paul Bielatowicz re-fabricates an ...

Transatlantic

Whirld Tour 2010: Deluxe Edition

Radiant Records/Metal Blade Records

2010

When Transatlantic wowed a Montreal, Canada audience back in April 2010, as part of its Whirld Tour in support of the 77-minute progressive rock epic, The Whirlwind (Radiant/Metal Blade, 2009), a few things stood out. First, for a group who, ...

King Crimson: In the Wake of Poseidon (40th Anniversary Series)

Read "In the Wake of Poseidon (40th Anniversary Series)" reviewed by John Kelman

Considered a poor cousin to In the Court of the Crimson King (DGM Live, 1969), 1970's In the Wake of Poseidon may possess superficial similarities to its groundbreaking predecessor, but as a 2005 All About Jazz review of an earlier edition suggested, ..."Poseidon also hints of changes in the wind." Part of the second round of ...

Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM): The Manticore Years

Read "Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM): The Manticore Years" reviewed by John Kelman

While other important Italian bands emerged in the heyday of the 1970s, such as Le Orme and Banco, when it comes to progressive rock, none can hold a candle to Premiata Forneri Marconi, commonly known in the English language world as PFM. Whether PFM is better or worse than any of these other groups is fodder ...
