A Reflection (CD)
From the people that brought us 'Giant For An Hour' and 'Giant For Another Hour' comes their latest compilation 'A Reflection'. I had the pleasure of reviewing both Giant releases, so when 'A Reflection' was sent to me, I was quite excited to hear it. As the subtitle suggests, these tracks are inspired by Gentle Giant which shouldn't be mistaken as a "tribute" album of Gentle Giant's music. Songs range from less than a minute to11 minutes and contains some memorable tracks like "Wood Nymphs" I noticed the music is closer to Gentle Giant's than the previous efforts, which should please fans since the Giant is sleeping. The epic of the compilation, "Islandia" has a slight Latin feel to it and keeps your attention all the way through. Think a Gentle Giant and a heavy early Santana mixture which gives the basis of the song. The shortest track, "We're Not Home", which has a humorous answering machine message. It's presented here twice, a regular 21 second and a 35 second extended version. Another highlight for me is "Off Bass" presented by Zed. It's a pure jazz and funk track. It contains some excellent playing. In fact the entire compilation has a quality to it that must not be missed by any fan of Gentle Giant, progressive rock or jazz fusion.
