A magnificent, superbly masterful American guitarist by the name of Tony Palkovic produced two seminal masterpieces of US-style fusion called "Deep Water" and "Every Moment" -- and thanks to osurec (the mighty osurec) again for introducing me to this brilliant and uncompromising artist. This is in the style of for ex. Mike Warren and Survival Kit or Mike Santiago and Entity (I always have trouble telling those two apart) or the Tony Dupuis album I posted last year. Tony P. is still active in music and just released an album called Esoteric:
I would really love to know if he has a day job, or if he is able to work only in music, because of his outstanding talents. I'd like to ask him what he thinks of these masterpieces of the past, and if he agrees with my constant thesis that the music of this period is superior to anything before or after. (Probably he would disagree, since he just made a CD.)
I just love this record, it's so full of energy, which is the prime reason I love fusion, but also it runs all over a huge variety of emotions and styles, and it's obvious he was classically trained because of the appearance here and there of classical chord progressions. So the sheer variety and creativity in here simply astounds me. I've mentioned this before as what I believe the single factor that explains to me why the progressive music was so good in this period, the fact that these musicians had such a great education to build on.

(both are excellent)
Quartet Music - ST (posted next up)
Quartet Music - Ocean Park (REUPPED BELOW)

Suburbanismo -- (Reupped two posts up)
Coalition - Mindsweepers -- (Reupped two posts up)
As usual, I will upload probably Monday or Tuesday if no one else does. Remember even though one person requests, about 50-150 people wind up downloading each link, so there's a huge need for these reups. I didn't realize this until I started doing it myself.
