Second “One Spirit” release. With the addition of Flying Dutchman guitarplayer Richard
Hallebeek as a permanent member, “One Spirit”, the brainchild of bassplayer Frans
Vollink and drummer Sebastiaan Cornelissen has now evolved into your classic fusion
trio line up: Blistering guitar solos on top of kick-ass rhythm-section playing.
Fusion lovers worldwide will be pleased hearing and find what they are looking for
on this new album: Progressive writing, yet with the classical “Weather Report-Mahavishnu
Orchestra” vibe and high level soloing by all three members. The compositions follow
a melodic path with highly listenable compositions distinguished by energetic and
thoughtful arrangements. On top of that the album features some hot guest appearances
with Randy Brecker returning on trumpet and Steve Hunt (Allan Holdsworth) joining
in for a keyboardssolo. Other guest appearances include Swedish keyboards virtuoso
Lalle Larsson, dutch jazz-pianist Rob van Bavel and percussionists Martin Verdonk
and Martin Gort.
