Richard Barbieri - Planets + Persona
Released last month, this new album from the ex-Japan keyboard player is his third solo album. This has the usual soft-jazz leanings and elegant drum patterns one has come to expect. They are augmented by some very exquisite samples but I can’t help thinking that inspiration this time is a little short in supply.
Night Of The Hunter and Unholy prove to be the exception with the latter proving that Barbieri can still conjure some magic.
