Airey, Don - K2 (Tales Of Triumph & Tragedy)

SKU 15-MOCD 650134
Don Airey is a first-call keyboard player, probably best known for his work in the hard rock arena with Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Deep Purple, etc. and also into progressive rock and jazz/rock with Jethro Tull, Colosseum II, Gary Moore and others.

This, his first solo album released under his own name, features some big name guests: Gary Moore, Cozy Powell and Colin Blunstone among others.

"As a fan of concept albums, I almost passed on this one based on previous reviews. Now I'm glad I did not. There is some adventurous stuff in here. It is a departure from Airey's metal/classic rock roots, but the music is still dynamic and spirited. If Alan Parson Project circa Eye in the Sky met Emerson, Lake and Powell this would be the offspring. The music is sweeping, cinematic, and straddles the line between neo prog and pop. I'm really enjoying this release, and encourage others who like prog with flourishes of majestic pomp to give it a shot. 4 stars out of 5."
