Volaré - The Uncertainty Principle (1997) Canterbury Scene • United States
"The Uncertainty Principle", com um som extremamente complexo, considerado um dos melhores trabalhos pós-canterbury dos últimos tempos. Com influencias do Soft Machine, National Health, The Muffins. Altamente recomendado!
A quartet from Athens-Georgia, this group managed two albums in the late 90's, but haven't been heard since. Actually, the usual prog quartet (with the bassist also doubling on sax) had started as a quintet as they also aligned a cellist, but by the debut album's release, he was gone. Their music is a rather quiet English jazz-rock, not far from Canterbury groups like Hatfield and National Health, but retaining its own spirit as well. Voted by many specialized mags, "The Uncertainty Principle" was in a lot of "top 10 of 97" lists, while the following "Memoirs" (released in 99) is actually a retrospective which contains the band's 1996 cassette tape debut in its entirety, along with three additional tracks.
According to their site, they named the band more due to a 70's US car Volaré, rather than the opera reference.
Patrick Strawser - keyboards, synths
Steve Hatch - guitars, mandolin
Richard M. Kesler - bass, saxophone
Brian Donohoe - drums, percussion
