This is the fourth solo album from former GALAHAD member and bassist Lee Abraham and a host of guest players from the world of Progressive Rock! Given the ample musical and stylistic variety on Distant Days this is a disc that will have plenty of shelf-life.
The third solo CD by Lee Abraham that features excellent musicians from the Prog scene including John Mitchell (It Bites), Simon Godfrey (Tinyfish), Jem Godfrey (Frost), Gary Chandler (Jadis), Steve Thorne, Sean Filkins, Simon Nixon, Dean Baker & Gerald Mulligan. His latest effort opens promising with a Pink Floyd-like intro and lots of distorted guitar, swiftly turning into a Dream Theater-like continuation in the first real track Face The Crowd. The tracks have power and melody throughout - this is a great release!
Lee Abraham's latest album - modern British Progressive rock with many luminaries from the progressive scene. Lee Abraham is a British bass player and multi instrumentalist. Was the bass player for Galahad from 2005 to 2009…
The excellent album from '08, of Galahad bass player and a guitarist Steve Kingman. The melodic soft prog-rock, played very well, the drums recorded and engineered by Karl Groom (THRESHOLD). The CD contains heavier tracks and guitar ballads, as well as nice melodies for fans from ASIA to BJH, Supertramp or ballad CAMEL.
In 2004 Lee released "View From The Bridge" again as a self release which included contributions from Karl Groom (Threshold, Shadowland) and Martin Orford (IQ, Jadis, Big Big Train). "View from the Bridge" shows that his maturation continues as a songwriter. In the tradition of Neal Morse, Lee combines catchy pop hooks with progressive instrumental passages, resulting in a nice stylistic blend - not too proggy for song-based music aficionados, but plenty proggy for the prog snobs.
A movie on the life of the renowned Bruce Lee, especially his relationship with his mistress (played by Betty Ting Pei, who was Lee's mistress in real life and in whose apartment he died).
Lee Konitz is a master of linear playing and a stylist on the highest level. The purity of Konitz intonation – that cool nobility which hasy been present in his playing since the 40s – is famous. Lee Konitz shows in this recording just how exquisite chords can sound even without chord instruments. But we have always known Lee to be one of the greatest spontaneous composers of Jazz. To play without chord instruments is absolutely no problem for a baritone saxophonist of Thomas Zoller’s calibre, it has had its own special fascination ever since the days of the Gerry Mulligan Quintet in the 50’s. Carlo Mombelli (South Africa) and Billy Elgart (USA) give a rhythm team that plays from funky to free with inspiring imagination. The result of this group’s unique partnership is a clear, transparent line. A revelry in counterpoint, modern grooves and sounds that ,sophistication.succeeds as seldom before, in a union of eloquence and fire.
