Flying Colors Live In Euro pe
Were the term supergroup still in use there’d be no better way to describe this band. Yet, unlike similar projects, this was not the brainchild of the musicians involved. That accolade goes to executive producer Bill Evans who conceived the idea of putting together a ‘pop’ singer with a bunch of seasoned and top quality players and Flying Colors was the result. With Casey McPherson vocals/rhythm guitar, Steve Morse lead guitar/vocals, Neal Morse keyboards/vocals, Dave LaRue bass and Mike Portnoy drums/vocals, their eponymous debut album was released last year. A tour followed and this concert was recorded in Tilburg, Holland. It’s quite simply superb! With only one album’s worth of material to draw from the set features a couple of songs from each other’s day jobs, and all are beautifully executed. We’ve reviewed this from the DVD which is expertly filmed and possesses stunning sound quality with an excellent mix. The visuals, however, are not the HD quality we’ve become used to. That said, this band is so good that it’s pure joy from start to finish. It’s also offered on BluRay, CD or vinyl and come highly recommended.
