LUCAS,WHITE & EDSEY LWE ProgRock Records (2006)

This prog trio of piano/keyboards, drums and bass will surely attract Emerson Lake & Palmer comparisons, which is no bad thing if you like your trad prog. This is, however, fully instrumental.

Opener 'Liberty' is if anything a little cheesy, with the classical piano prominent, the band just playing. If non jazzy jazz fusion makes sense then this is it. Great musicianship though, that much is clear.

'Sleight Of Hand And Foot' is better, and does sound more like ELP, with organ and sudden bursts of electronic sounds.

'A Note To Jordan' is a little more experimental and flashy too, highlighting the keyboard skills.

At any one moment, the layering, structure and musicianship is second to none, but overall the song structure and lack of vocals, and without being as progressive as ELP, make for a kind of sameyness. Not quite that jazz fusion self righteousness, but a cross between that and prog rock. At the lounge music / coffee table music end of what is otherwise pretty good prog rock.
