Review by Gary Hill
I previously reviewed an album with these two artists. On that one Hackett got the first billing. This time it’s reversed. I love the music on this thing. It’s part killer jazz, part prog rock and all cool. Only the first song has vocals. Normally it can be hard for albums that are fully instrumental to really hold interest throughout and not feel tired. This set never has that problem. I’m genuinely disappointed when it ends. All in all, if you like fusion with incredible instrumental performances all delivered in service to the song, you will love this. Not only do you get the CD with this package, but also a DVD that has stereo and surround mixes of the whole album, a music video and a live show. I think that would be worthwhile all by itself. The beautiful part, though is that here it’s a bonus. You can’t beat that. This is likely to make my “best of 2017” list actually.
