John was recently invited by the exciting “prog-rocker”, composer and guitarist Robin Taylor and his “Universe” to bend the strings on his Gibson guitar. The album is a kind of retrospective “Best of” as a request from his many fans, especially in the United States, but recreated and updated in alignment with new forces. How many of us haven’t dreamed of being able to do that – going back in time and improve older recordings – but facts in life doesn’t normally provide you that opportunity. The album is called “Across the Universe” (not to be confused with that great Beatles song). The music is an exciting blend of fresh prog. rock with elements of jazz, experimental and other goodies.
It is the first time I’ve been involved in Robin Taylor’s Universe and I definitely recommend that you check it out.
LINE UP: (among others) Jacob Mygind – sax, Klaus Thrane – drums, Frank Carvalho – guitar, Thomas Ulstrup – mini-moog.
