Trevor Rabin: new instrumental album in the wings

Trevor Rabin is mixing his first solo album since 1989, a collection of instrumentals that Voiceprint Records will release in September...It's time to let this baby go," he says. "In every project I have done, there has been (a deadline and a goal). With (my first band) Rabbit, it was a single and then albums; with Yes you had to make a strong, viable album, and with film you've got a schedule to keep. Here, I was able to do what I wanted. It's not necessarily easy on the ears." more

In 2003, Neal Morse released his Testimony album. It was an artistic triumph that was and is still considered one of his best to date. With the sequel, Testimony 2, Neal goes even deeper into unchartered musical and lyrical territory. Incorporating the legendary drummerMike Portnoy and the excellent bassist, Randy George, this breathtaking album is a prog epic with depth that will dazzle and melodies that reach into the soul.
Disc 1 - Testimony 2, the main disc tells us the poignant story of Neal's life from the beginning of Spock's Beard through when his leaving the band in 2002. The brilliant conceptual piece consists of 13 songs in three sections each over twenty minutes long.
Total time: 78:52
Disc 2 consists of 3 great tracks. Two shorter songs and one 26:00 minute prog epic, "Seeds of Gold" which features a guitar solo by famed guitarist, Steve Morse.
Total Time: 36:51
This album marks the audio reunion of Spock's Beard as it contains a "tribute" to Spock's where Neal and the guys sing an elaborate vocal section that is reminiscent of the early days of the band.
