2001-Dice In Sapce is the fourth studio album by German progressive rock band DICE. The music of 'Dice' is preoccupied with trips to inner and outer space, so it was inevitable, if a bit superfluous, that they would eventually produce an effort entitled 'Dice in Space'. The pieces are linked by sounds reminiscent of those in PINK FLOYD's echoes, but on the whole this is much warmer and gentler music than Floyd. They manage to conjure a variety of emotions and stylings, many of which are throwbacks to the 70s.
This is the 19th release from this German band and is for fans of 70's prog rock but with a modern element. Pink Floyd/ELOY/Yes/Jethro Tull are obvious influences but there are also elements of the UK neo prog movement - Marillion/Pallas. If you haven’t listened to any Dice material so far, it’s about time you check them out.
The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and John Densmore on drums. The band got its name, at Morrison's suggestion from the title of Aldous Huxley's book The Doors of Perception, which itself was a reference to a quote made by William Blake, "If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite." They were unique and among the most controversial and influential rock acts of the 1960s, mostly because of Morrison's lyrics and charismatic but unpredictable stage persona…
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A beautiful set from Sonny Fortune – a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still with a deeply soulful finish that keeps the album fresh throughout! Nearly every track was written (or co-written) by Larry Willis, who plays piano and Fender Rhodes on the set, and really feels like Sonny's co-leader on the session – and who gives the album a hiply swinging feel that's similar to his own work at the time. Titles include "Samba Touch", "Perihelion", "This Side Of Infinity", "Turning It Over", and "The Blues Are Green".
This is a fusion date that mixes together Miroslav Vitous' acoustic bass with electric instruments including Kenny Kirkland's synthesizer and guitarist John Scofield. Some of the music grooves (such as "Off to Buffalo") while other tracks are episodic mood pieces. Actually most of the performances have an incomplete feel to them with "Guardian Angels" wandering somewhat aimlessly, making this a CD recommended only to completists.
