The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up
Finnish musician Marco Bernard, bass player for international progressive rock band, The Samurai of Prog, has released his first solo album. Joined by numerous guest musicians, Marco embarks on an ambitious concept album centered around Peter Pan's adventures and his longing to never grow up.
While some may find the album a bit too theatrical and cinematic, it still offers an abundance of classic prog moments. For those who embrace this style (like we do at Prog Radio), the album is delightful. Even the more extravagant moments have completely grown on us after just a few listens. This is a concept album meant to be enjoyed from beginning to end.
Fans of The Samurai of Prog and grand prog concept "musicals" should not miss this album. Marco and the participating musicians showcase their talent and deliver an exceptional performance.
Several tracks from the album are currently featured in the New Music rotation at Prog Radio.
