Un disco che inorgoglisce il Progressive Italiano, senza spazio e senza tempo, a dimostrazione che questa magia mai finirà. (Massimo Salari, recensione al CD Suite degli Animali Fantastici, 28 febbraio 2015, http://nonsoloprogrock.blogspot.it/2015/02/quanah-parker.html).

Rick Wakeman and “Amazing Grace”

More than 1800 existing versions of the well-known hymn Amazing Grace, but just one of them played in “3/4+3/8” time! This is what one can hear in Rick Wakeman‘s beautiful 2 Disc DVD & CD collection Amazing Gracehttp://youtu.be/z6_Ulj_CyCI Progressive rock legend Rick Wakeman seems fond of this meter–it is the same one used in the opening theme of his famous masterpiece Journey To The Centre Of The Earth (1974). Of course, you can also think the “3/4+3/8” time as a “9/8 (2+2+2+3)” mixed meter, or as a “4/4+1/8” mixed meter if you prefer. In any case, this version of Amazing Grace is another witness to Wakeman’s originality and lyrical approach to the piano. Continua…

Progressive rock: Quanah Parker “Quanah!”

Just found another great review  to the CD Quanah! (Diplodisc dpl 004) by my Quanah Parker progressive rock band. Released in November 2012 and co-produced by Quanah Parker and Alessandro “Unfolk” Monti, this CD is gaining many very favourable reviews, a fairly nice amount of airplay (in Italy, USA and UK), and it has recently been re-released with an expanded cover artwork too. Quanah! is distributed worldwide by G.T. Music Distribution and is available through many websites, such as CDBaby.com and Amazon.it . Quanah Parker is currently completing a second CD, which among other things will also include a 25-minutes long Suite degli Animali Fantastici, whose masterful lyrics have been written by our friend Alessandro “Unfolk” Monti. More on this band on these pages soon! Meanwhile, thank you again Redazione Hamelin Prog for this beautiful review, and… long live Prog!
