The first live album as an EP version of GUIDO BUNGENSTOCK‘s Band TAURUS shows the incredible joy of playing in this formation. Even the opening song “The Pump” (Jeff Beck, Tony Hymas) becomes evident, where the musical journey goes: Rocking melodic guitar sounds with plenty of room for improvisation and supported by a pulsating rhythm section. Already in his sweeping intro of his beautiful ballad “Thinking Of You” GUIDO BUNGENSTOCK demonstrates his fine ear for soulful melody, Goosebumps guaranteed! In “Redhouse” (Jimi Hendrix), he shows his bluesy side while MIKEL ALLEN shines with his warm soulful voice in this song. And also at the second Blues “Blues for Jeff” GUIDO BUNGENSTOCK pulls out all rock register and AXEL MEYER’s Rhodes piano solo is a hilight for every jazz listener. Especially noteworthy is JEROME LELLOUCHE’s groovy playing and his punchy drum sound throughout the album. The last track on this EP “Space Me” (recorded in his home studio) is a bonus track and a surprising mix of straightforward melody accompanied by complex chord progressions.
An absolute listening experience!
