Album Review

Former Yes and Moody Blues keyboardist Patrick Moraz mixes numerous Latin and rock rhythms together via his lively synth work, resulting in a full-flavored, energetic album. Not typical sounding to say the least, there are hints of funk and marimba, Caribbean and South American styles, and even flamenco, all guided by Moraz's whirlwind keyboard playing. Inspired by the Brazilian ballet, each song dances with piquancy and flow, never repeating the same rhythms or sounds while at the same time introducing a wide variety of percussion instruments. Andy Newmark's drums add dimension to the fiery patterns conjured up on "Dancing Now" and "Incantations," raising the musical temperature of both tracks. Delightful additions of marimbaphone, cello, gongs, tam-tams, and even castagnets jump in and out of all the songs, fusing both a modern and a primitive sound together. Images of the south seas hover atop Moraz's wandering rhythms, as he sounds unconfined behind the synthesizer. The French vocals sung by Veronique Mueller in a few of the album's songs only add to the illustriousness, as does Moraz's vibrant singing. The Story of I is a refreshing twist from this progressive craftsman and can sincerely be appreciated by all audiences.
