The Tangent – Proxy (InsideOut Music, 2018)
Composer, keyboardist and vocalist Andy Tillison is the social conscience of progressive rock. He’s a musician that doesn’t have any problem exposing society’s problems. Tillison is also one of the great innovators in the current progressive rock scene. The Tangent puts out a brilliant mix of progressive rock, jazz-rock fusion, funk, forward-thinking trip hop and, on the Proxy album, Spanish influences.
The band, as usual, is outstanding. Andy Tillison always surrounds himself with some of the finest musicians in the progressive rock scene, including remarkable guitarist Luke Machin, who combines an enviable skill with a multi-faceted set of guitar sounds. On the enchanting track “The Melting Andalusian Skies” he channels Al Di Meola and the great Andalusian rock guitarists.
The band on Proxy includes Andy Tillison on vocals and keyboards; Jonas Reingold on bass; Theo Travis on saxophone and flute; Luke Machin on guitars; Steve Roberts on drums; and guest Goran Edman.
Proxy is yet another masterful progressive rock work by The Tangent.
