massos270 What the hell is this? I grew up listening to Weather Report, Al di Meola, Earth Wind and Fire, Caldera, Chick Corea, Jeff Lorber, all the great jazz, funk, artists. Wow, this music puts a smile on my face. It sounds familiar but not quite. It is absolutely brilliant. Seriously mind blowing. It's witchcraft!

Track Name: Crimson Dreams
The vanishing point of horizontal veils,
Shiver of vibrating stillness
in the motion of bending expanse of thought,
looking at itself
in the vastness of crimson wind.
Who is the witness?
Who sees these dream-like notions of bumblebees
gathering nectar in the raspberry groves
of the crimson dreams?
