Michael Giles - Progress album FLAC

Michael Giles recorded 'Progress' in 1978 (even so the record was only released in 2002) mainly with the help of musicians from the Canterbury scene in particular multi- instrumentalist Geoffrey Richardson ('Caravan'), who is also the only musician playing on all the tracks but the two track where Giles plays all instruments In an interview done with Michael Giles at the time of the release of King Crimson& "Epitaph" live album, done in 1997, Giles was asked about why this album, which was recorded in 1978, was still unreleased. He said that he was not satisfied with the album, and that he even looked for a record contract with a label but he didn& get it then.

Progress (Michael Giles album). Progress is a solo album recorded by original King Crimson drummer Michael Giles. John Mealing – electric piano solo (3), electric piano (4, 10), piano (8). Peter Giles – bass guitar (2, 4, 5, 7, 10, 12). John G. Perry – bass guitar (3, 8), voice (3). Ray Warleigh – alto saxophone (7, 12). Martin Drover – trumpet (7), flugelhorn (7, 12). Pete Thoms – trombone (7, 12). Michael Blakesley – trombone (8, 10). Catherine Howe – voice (8, 12). Colin Bryant – clarinet (10).

It came out only in 2002 and thus will appeal mostly to nostalgic fans. A loosely conceptual album built around a trip by train, Progress is a very nice album of prog rock with hints of jazz fusion and Canterbury-style writing. Michael Giles is not a great singer. His voice recalls Chris Squire's on the latter's solo LP, Fish Out of Water (. it lacks strength and character to assume a leading role). Then again, only five of the 12 tracks have lyrics. The other tunes range from delicate atmospheres to full-on prog rock anthems and feature established . It was recorded in 1978, but unreleased until 2002. All words and music composed, recorded and produced by Michael Giles.
