Ben’s self-titled debut is a classic example of 70s British jazz-rock, beautifully executed. Here are lengthy multi-part suites, excellent musicianship and an overall very appealing early 70′s, very jazzy progressive rock sound with lots of flute, sax, keyboards and guitar.
The group’s harmonic blend of jazz and progressive rock and the considerable talent of each musician takes the listener on an inspired and vivid journey.
