A New Prog Suite by Quanah Parker
Great news: our second album has been completed!
This album features five original compositions by our keyboardist Riccardo, among them the 25-minutes long Suite degli Animali Fantastici, whose fascinating lyrics (and some musical contributions as well) have been written by Alessandro “unfolk” Monti (also a member of the original 1981-1985 line-up of this band).
In our view, Alessandro's lyrics for this Suite have a very high poetic quality and we feel they are close to the greatest progressive rock masterpieces. To you to discover them!
As usual, all the titles of this album have been arranged by the whole band, with Alessandro contributing (in the Suite and the piece From Distant Lands) as a very interesting bassist too.
The album is released by the label M.P. & Records and distributed by G.T. Music Distribution, which already distributes our 1st album Quanah! (2012, Diplodisc dpl 004) and the very interesting DIPLOCOMP: A Diplodisc Sampler (this latter including a new voice-piano-choir arrangement of our old classic "prog ballad" After The Rain).
In its catalog, M.P. & Records has many albums by Prog legends such as Rick Wakeman, Arturo Stàlteri, Pierrot Lunaire, Le Orme, Bernardo Lanzetti, so we Quanah Parker are very proud of being part of this!
