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.
