Jack Jeffery – Enlightened Horizon

Jack Jeffery – Enlightened Horizon
Jack Jeffery was definitely paying attention to the pioneers of prog rock. That is a good thing as he has found a way to channel his influences into his own sound. You can hear the tendrils of Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Marillion, and Renaissance among others in Jack’s work. You also hear folksy passages in “The Road That Never Ends,” electronica more in the Prodigy direction in “Continuum,” and even a touch of Americana in the dramatic opus “Never Go Back to the Mountain.” He also has a knack for creating infectious grooves that really draw you in, particularly evident in tracks like “Trans-Celestial Express.” Jack has incredible stories to tell and does them both with his soul bearing lyrics, powerfully melodic vocal croon and prowess on a plethora of instruments and keyboards. Proving that prog can still be innovative even while holding dear to your roots, this is some excellent ear-opening music. – MW
