Steven Wilson, the prolific british musician and leader of Procupine Tree, has released a stunning live album recorded in one night in April, 2012 in Mexico City as part of a South American Tour. The set includes two audio CD's, a Blue Ray DVD and a regular DVD.

The music is drawn from the "Grace For Drowning" solo LP although the songs are extended and arranged differently. The musicianship is amazing. These guys can really play like a great jazz fusion band.

Wilson's music has progressive roots but sometimes takes off in areas similar to "Soft Machine". The music is full of dynamics and instrumental colors such as saxophones, flute, clarinet and the Stick Synth played by Nick Beggs, the bassist and background vocalist. Wilson always uses great drummers and Marco Minnemann is no exception.

Listening to the audio CD's on a good system is great but the music fully comees alive on the DVD with great visuals that were filmed by Lasse Hoile

If you are into prog or jazz fusion this is an album for you.
