Jackson. Andy - 73 Days At Sea (2016)
The second album from this British artist.
Andy Jackson does all the instruments here with the exceptions from the saxophones where he has been helped by David Jackson (Van Der Graaf Generator etc etc) and the female vocals where he has got help from Anne Marie Helder from Panic Room.
Andy Jackson was the engineer on the final Pink Floyd albums.... from A Momentary Lapse Of Reason and to the final album. In 2014, he released his first album Signal To Noise.
I thought this was going to be an all singing stars studded album with lots of guest musicians. I was wrong. Andy Jackson has gone for the less-is-more formula. And in this case; rightly so !
Pink Floyd is a big reference on this album. This album reminds me a lot about their The Division Bell album. There is also a lot of A Momentary Lapse Of Reason in his music on this album.
There is also some more psych and space rock here than on those Pink Floyd albums. That is the main difference between Andy Jackson and Pink Floyd.
The music is very laidback with good vocals and guitars from Andy. Both acoustic and electric guitars.
The album is almost fifty minutes long and is a good reminder about what makes this kind of music so good. This is indeed a very good album and one to really enjoy. Check it out.
