Vasil Hadzimanov Band - Lines in Sand

Vasil Hadzimanov is back with his sophomore release around three years after his debut. This time the virtuoso Serbian keyboardist, composer and arranger is expanding his musical horizons by embellishing his ethnic, Balkan folk, prog rock and jazz/fusion music with atmospheric, R&B, funk, avant garde, psychedelia, trance and electronica elements here and there. Still, the musical experimentations along with the passionate and creative improvisations are here, cuz they are the very essence of this “kind of music”, in a way.
 

Focus - Focus 11

Focus have been around for a loooong time. And while they enjoyed a solid decade from the late 60s to the late 70s after that period – they only sporadically reunited, until resuming typically in 2002 and since then they’ve been doing on strong ever since.
 
“11” is their first proper album of new material in some time, if we discard the best of, anniversary and guest efforts, the actual and spiritual sequel to 2012’s “X”.
