Marco Bernard with Rickenbacker and Shuker basses and Kimmo Pörsti with drums and percussion and 20 guest musicians. Together they have made the album Bernard And Pörsti – Gulliver. This is NOT the eight album from Samurai Of Prog, but Gulliver was released some weeks ago.
This musical spin-off from The Samurai of Prog reaches its completion in the Bernard And Pörsti project with Gulliver, a concept album inspired by the character’s travels as told by Jonathan Swift, that maintains the style and the DNA of the original band.
The «third samurai», Steve Unruh, is still present – even though in only one track – and will be soon re-joining the others for a new record on which The Samurai Of Prog are already working, The Chronicles, inspired to the Chronicles Of Narnia.
Gulliver, is a progressive rock presentation of the famous story of Gulliver’s Travels, from the author Jonathan Swift. Expect intricate electric guitars and much very good organ, mellotron, great vocals, some deep bass and jazzy sax and wonderful musical interaction and much skilled instrumentation. The longest track is the very nice song Lilliput Suite. More tha 17 minutes long.
