Jakko Jakszyk - Mustard Gas And Roses (repost)











Jakko Jakszyk - Mustard Gas And Roses - 1994

It is great to have Jakko on the Archive at last. This is a wonderful Prog related album with Canterbury Scene influences. I say this because some of the tracks are clearly more pop rlated, but definitely with heay progressive rock influences. This music is very much in the Gaskin and Stewart / Caravan category of Prog Rock. There are some incredible instrumentals here. Just listen to "Devil's Dictionary" and you'll realise that this some of the best melodic jazz fusion meets Canterbury prog rock around. "when We Go Home" is another classic with well constructed melody and rhythm patterns with meaningful lyrics. Some of the other tracks do not come to standard of the two tracks, but are still very enjoyable to anyone appreciates good rock music.
