Re: Prog Rock Wednesdays
Camel "Rhayader Goes to Town" Los Angeles, 1997
This week's selection is a bit of a cross-over between Prog and Jazz Fusion. There's some clever interplay between keyboardist Foss Patterson and guitarist / flutist Andy Latimer. The bass arrangement (Colin Bass) during the opening flute section always makes me smile ... so smooth. This concert was from their "Coming of Age" DVD, and was the last concert filmed before Latimer became very sick with cancer. There was a hiatus of several years before he could return to performing, but they're still going strong and producing terrific music.
