Legacy Pilots: Frank Us and many musical friends…..

Legacy Pilots - Aviation

Legacy Pilots is a multinational band and their spohmore album is entitled Aviation and last 64 minutes and nine seconds. The track A Different League is according to Frank Us, «First, this song was about love at first sight. Who can’t relate to the moment you first lay eyes on the most beautiful person you’ve ever seen? Later on, I’ve realized, that the brilliant musicianship that the guys brought into this, justify as well, to call this song A Different League. 😉 ».

The Hamburg-based musician Frank Us looks back on a long musical career. He played in a few local bands before turning music into his profession, successfully composing jingles for products and companies. His secret love is and has always been the progressive rock that had the biggest musical influence on him. Frank US says, progressive rock always has moments of calmness, sometimes inside a big epic piece, sometimes on its own as a silent ballad.

Frank Us have collected a impressing line-up on Aviation:

Frank Us

Todd Sucherman (Styx)

Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, The Aristocrats, Mike Keneally)

Pete Trewavas (Marillion, Transatlantic, Kino, Edison’s Children)

Lars Slowak

John Mitchell (Arena, Frost*, It Bites, Kino, Lonely Robot)

Jake Livgren (Proto Kaw, Kerry Livgren)

Finally George

Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Kansas, Flying Colors, Dixie Dregs)

Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater)

From catchy pop pearls and ballads, to sophisticated rock titles and epic-progressive works with durations of over 10 minutes, the musicians offer a wide range of their art, in which the composition and not the undoubtedly existing technique is still in the foreground.

Frank Us sates about the track An Adventures Journey, The song tells the story about someone who has a permanent wanderlust. Though this journey is an adventure or even has dangerous moments, after his return and a short moment of silence, his inner restlessness starts again…

So it is a movie score, for a film that only exist in your imagination.

This piece of music not only features a brilliant Todd Suchermann but also a spectacular guitar solo by Steve Morse.

Us tells abou the song Fear Part One – Proximity and Distance «A song about people who find it difficult to enter into relationships. Since they had already had bad experiences, the fear of disappointment sometimes seems overwhelming.

This song features Marco Minnemann on the drums with a wonderful performance».

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4235 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
