Tiger Moth Tales - The Depths Of Winter (2017)
The third album from this British one-man band.
Peter Jones does the ukulele, keyboards, clarinet, guitars, percussion, drum programming and vocals here.
He has got help from numerous other musicians where who added guitars, voice and numerous woodwinds.
The standards of the previous two Tiger Moth Tales albums has been so high that they have marked out Peter Jones as an exceptional talent. His work in Red Bazar also adds to his very good reputation.
It was therefore with a great deal of pleasure I started the listening sessions for this album.
What we get here is good new symphonic prog with some conceptual songs. The speech in the middle of this album brings tears to the listener and the melancholy that follows is great.
There is a lot of tasteful woodwinds here. Most of this seventy minutes long album consists of keyboards, guitars and vocals.
The music is the usual high standards I have come to expect from Tiger Moth Tales and Peter Jones. The long songs and Genesis like symphonic prog makes this a very good album indeed.
Check out this album.
