The Ben Cameron Project, a four piece brilliant band, with guest musicians, led by guitarist, lead vocalist Ben Cameron. I were very impressed by their former album release (read the review elsewhere on these pages)..now with a name and cover art that signals:
Jazz fusion (sorry guys, thats just me, being a cover-artist my self) some would ignore or dismiss this band/album and that my friends would be a big mistake !! These guys play excellent prog music and with some epic tunes to prove it, this album holds 2 fine examples of just that, check out : "This Is All Illusion" and "A Cycle Never Ending".
What you get here are brilliant muscianship with great keyboards (Organ) and superb lead guitar, add to that great vocals and good compositions.
It is not, how ever tight high powered prog, you also get some very beautiful acoustic sequences here and there. A perfect blend of their capability, I love this band!
So an album with 4 tracks (but what 4 tracks!) as with their former release, I must have this album in my private collection!!
If I were to mention a negative thought, it would be the somewhat limited vocal range of Cameron. Yes it truely works on some of the sequences here, but in the big picture they would gain extra musical power with a great singer!
That said, I must mention the excellence of Cameron´s guitar play in general, it is brilliant, as is the keyboards of Varga.
Oh..one guest musician here are the famous BJ COLE on (of course) Pedal Steel Guitar.
A great listen, that grow with every spin!! GO!!
P.s. Get some psychedelic/prog vibes on your cover art, I promise you guys, it will get more response!!
