"Advent's" guitar virtuoso Alan Benjamin doesn't shop frequently on Bandcamp, but when he does, there's always something interesting in his cart. Like this groovy fusion album, for instance. Evan Waaramaa is a young and gifted composer, whose name I've found here for the first time - more than four years after the release of this sixpack. You know that I'm a Rhodes fan, and the wonderful sound of this instrument constitutes the foundation of this album. Well, actually Evan Waaramaa plays a "Nord Electro 4 HP" with hammer action keys, as YouTube reveals, but it doesn't matter - it just demonstrates in addition, how authentically the Nord devices emulate vintage keyboards. The entire band consists of first-class musicians, with the scat vocals of Song Yi Jeon being another highlight.
Favorite track: Aurora.
