CD Review: Legendary Musicians Follow The "MAP" To The New Moraz Alban Project Album

Legendary keyboardist Patrick Moraz (Yes, Moody Blues) has teamed up with drummer Greg Alban to release "MAP," the first album from the Moraz Alban Project. The two became friends after Moraz invited Alban to perform on his solo 1984 album "Timecode." As Moraz was looking to expand his sound and talents, he assembled the perfect band to help him, including John Avila (Oingo Bongo), Lenny Castro (Rolling Stones, Eric Claton), Matt Malley (Counting Crows), Patrick Perrier and Dave VanSuch.
The new nine song release takes you on an amazing instrumental journey that keeps you discovering more within the music. Beginning with the progressive rock rhythm of "Jungle Aliens," the band seems to be settling into their roles. The jazzy feel of "Canyon Afternoon" leads into the smooth "Jazz In The Night." Greg Alban takes the spotlight in "The Drums Also Solo," before the band takes off with the spacey sounds of "Alien Intelligence," led by Moraz' keyboards. The album closes with the slow moving experimentation of "Alien Species." To find out more about the Moraz Alban Project's new album "MAP," please be sure to visit
