A high-flying vigorous album by the keyboard wizard just off three years with Yes. Moraz is basically a jazz rock fusionist.
What he brings to The Story Of I are Brazilian and Latin rhythms which weave through his fiery synthesizer dramatics.
Fans of rock fusion and/or Moraz will probably find something to like here.

However, If you are just curious, you may find this record daunting, [at least at first]. Moraz is more accessible on Mainhorse or The Yes album Relayer. On the Moody Blues albums one can hear him in a more structured though undiminished context.
