Back in the Seventies, the brothers Greg & Jeff SHERMAN had a musical project called GLASS. Unfortunately, nobody wanted to sign them, even when they decided to leave for the homeland of Progressive rock: Great-Britain ! Which is amazing of itself: the talent in this American band is quite obvious ! Not only are they great musicians, but they are also great songwriters. Twenty-five years later, our two partners in crime decided to repatriate long recorded musical pieces and release them as a double-CD called "No Stranger To The Skies", partly recorded live and partly in the studio. The result is one superb album, reissued in the year 2004 by the Musea label. A mix of orchestral Progressive rock and jazz-rock fusion, this unique piece of work is a real delight for the fans of Mellotron and Fender Rhodes electric piano ! The whole sounds as fresh as it had been recorded today... "Illuminations" (2005) is a real studio album indeed, showcasing a different side of GLASS. If the music is still as majestic and impressive as it has been, it also displays evidences of a true maturity. Soloing is kept to a minimum in favour of huge instrumental sections that belie the arrangements complexity. Let's also note that the track "Isle Of Dyslexia" has been recorded with the help of Hugh HOPPER (SOFT MACHINE), as "Gaia" features HATFIELD AND THE NORTH's creative duet: Richard SINCLAIR & Phil MILLER. Here's a new masterpiece that has to be part of every Progressive rock discography ! Newly released on the Musea label, "Live At Progman Cometh" presents two GLASS performances from 2002 and 2003 at Seattle's Moore Theater, plus one bonus-track ("No Stranger To The Skies") recorded at BajaProg in 2002. There are five instrumental compositions for more than 70 minutes of music. Sounds promising, doesn't it ? This is an opportunity to hear GLASS playing on stage with such luminaries as Elton DEAN, Hugh HOPPER, Richard SINCLAIR and the brothers Bill & Paul KOPECKY. Mostly unreleased, the titles mix the legacy of Progressive rock, symphonic music and Canterbury School in a unique blend of raw live energy and inspired performance. A timeless masterpiece ! "Spectrum Principle" (Musea, 2010) finds the band breaking new ground in the direction of the electronic soundscapes and sound collages introduced on "Illuminations". Loosely defined as a concept-album, "Spectrum Principle" offers a unique view into the worlds of particle physics, quantum theory, human abstract thought and the possibility of alternate universes as seen through the unique perspective of GLASS drummer and album producer Jerry COOK. All band members contribute equally to the writing and there's something here for all fans of Progressive rock music: the Canterbury School-influenced jazz-rock songs the band helped pioneer in the Seventies (complex time signatures, vintage Hammond organ, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes and Mini-Moogs abound), classic European symphonic Progressive rock, acoustic music and much more...
