Glenn THOMSON has spent a lifetime in the service of music. His baptism was the Progressive rock of the Seventies. His first reference points the European electronica of TANGERINE DREAM, VANGELIS or Rick WAKEMAN, and then to jazz and the avant-garde with Joe ZAWINUL, John CAGE and SUN RA. A keyboards player, session musician, producer and film composer, the Australian is uncompromising in his vision and always responsive to its call. "Spidercraft U.F.O." (Musea Parallèle, 2012) is an eclectic mix of Progessive rock, jazz-rock fusion and electronica. The album features a soaring cinematic architecture, anthemic songs and in the words of 2012's Grammy winner for mastering album of the year, Tom COYNE, "The ultimate definition of cool" ! "Artaud's Cane" (Musea Parallèle, 2014) captivates from the opening track, "Silver", charting the challenging life of the French playwright and poet Antonin ARTAUD. "Everyone's Faking", with jazz inflected guitar and saxophone dancing over Sixties-influenced brass lines and sharp lyrics confronts questions of personal authenticity. Devotees of symphonic rock will be enchanted by "Wonders In The Air" with its pastoral grandeur building to a rapturous coda. "Pretty Fools" mixes thundering rock with ultra cool Hammond organ and has one of the best screaming Moog solos we have heard in a long time. The neo Progressive epic, "Face Against The Clouds", tells of a young boy's ability to see the future in the shapes of clouds and is sure to be an enduring favourite. With a gift for storytelling, swooping synths and an impossible to forget chorus, the song reminds us of the keyboards of David SANCIOUS from Jon ANDERSON'S "Animation". "The Goodness Will Prevail" brings jazz and symphonica together in a perfect marriage with saxophone, Chet BAKER trumpet and upright-bass accompanied by piano and horns. "Some Men Are Born" is haunting, reflective electronica. "Fall" is stripped back and lyrically masterful, questioning identity and relationships, wrapped in a rich canvas of harmony and colour. "Humphrey Bogart" challenges all that we know in a collision of experimental chant and improvised lyrics with a plaintive, melodic verse and a gentle nod to THE WHO. "Soar" is a widescreen anthem of power and splendour and has a truly inspired jam to close the album. Special mention should made to the design of Marisa PASSOS who has worked with Glenn THOMSON to create a true work of art rich with liner notes and resources, complimenting the music perfectly and giving the collector something to treasure. Glenn THOMSON combines visionary musicianship with an expansive melodic palette that brings to mind the best of the Progressive rock greats: YES, GENESIS and VANGELIS. Lovers of the symphonic will delight in the magic of "Artaud's Cane". Not to be missed !
