Don Airey should by now be a household name to every serious classic rock/Prog collector. Currently with Deep Purple, but his very impressive musical journey includes acts like: Gary Moore, Ozzy , Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, Whitesnake, Saxon, Wishbone Ash, Steve Vai, Colosseum II, Sinner, Michael Schenker, Rainbow, Empire, Thin Lizzy, Brian May and Cozy Powell, to name a few, speaks for itself!! This new release features many of Don´s musical friends and especially one of the last performances from Gary Moore ("Adagio" & "Mini Suite")...Airey has long ago proved he is up there with the other keyboard wizards such as: Keith Emerson/ Manfred Mann/ Patrick Moraz/ Rick Wakeman/ Jon Lord!! Aireys virtuosity shines on this album, but especially on: "Blue Rondo A La Turk"/"Claire D´Loon"/"Mini Suite" and "Adagio". This album is a brilliant blend of top class Classic rock and superb keyboard wizardry!! If you are a classic rock freak and/or a fan of superb keyboard play, this release is a MUST OWN!! This is by far Airey´s best outing til date!! Its is varied, it is complex, it is beautiful, it is classic rock superb, it is deservedly excellent!! Finally Don Airey got the formula, to get across, merging both worlds he so well performs in!! I highly recommend this album to anyone of you whom love classic rock and like the spice of progressive keyboard play!! This is for you!! This is a magnificent album, with many excellent tracks in both mentioned genre´s! I personally love Albinoni´s "Adagio" with the superb guitars of Gary Moore ...wonderful just wonderful!! So why wait? GO GET IT!!
