Abel Ganz is a band from Scotland that has been active since 1980. Most people know that former Pallas lead singer Alan Reed used to sing on their albums, however they never really got the attention which Pallas got in the media. Too bad, because all of their five previously released studio albums contain excellent progressive rock music. The same can be said about their latest release, which they simply titled Abel Ganz. This album saw the light of day in 2014. The band's mix of several styles throughout the entire album, works very well on Abel Ganz. The sometimes folky, slightly jazzy and playful classic ingredients certainly enriches the progressive rock this band makes. Everything is done very tastefully and therefore the album has to be heard in one go.

The debut album from these Glaswegian/Scottish neo-progsters follows the usual prog path from the 1980s. The songs are pretty light melodic and not overly complicated. The sound is surprisingly good. Most of all; they sounds like a melodic version of Marillion.

Some bands have been around for so long that it's natural to assume that their recorded output has been much higher than it actually has. One such band is Scotland's Abel Ganz who started life in 1980 under the direction of multi-instrumentalist Hugh Carter and keyboardist Hew Montgomery. The first album released 25 years ago also included vocalist Alan Reed before he was poached by Pallas, but more about him later. Shooting Albatross is the bands fifth release with their last appearing back in the early 90's. There are some hints of classic Yes, Genesis, Moody Blues, the Beatles, Jethro Tull and even some more metallic sounds here and there…

Abel published quite a few chamber works with flute, meeting the demand for new music by the many gentleman flutists in England. The flute concertos contained here, despite their opus number, were never published, but are found in a manuscript held in Leipzig which can be dated prior to 1759. Stylistically these works have left the Baroque far behind, with regular phrases, simple basses , broad harmonic movement. The melodies make ample use of lombardic rhythms and syncopations and the florid passaggi sparkles with triplets and scalar passages in sixteenths. Though there are occasional harmonic complications which recall Abel's background, the overall tone here is that of the Enlightenment. Who can Abel have written these works for?

Each issue takes a soul-searching foray into the hearts and minds of the heroes of rock, reviewing both new and old releases. Building upon the history of some of the most genre-defining pieces ever devised and those who followed who continue to refine, revolutionise and completely discard the formulas of those who came before.

Although Carl Friedrich Abel (1723–87) is known as one of the last and greatest virtuosos of the viola da gamba, his instrument declined in popularity towards the end of the 18th century, leading him to compose for other instruments; some of his most successful results can be heard in the music recorded on this disc. Abel’s ability to compose particularly fine music for the flute can be traced back his time working at the Dresden court, which possessed one of the greatest orchestras of the era .Among the musicians working there were the flautists Buffardin and Quantz - the latter a prolific composer of flute concertos and sonatas for Frederick the Great, a notable patron of the arts.
