Title - 'Another Day'
Artist - David Cross & David Jackson

For those not in the know, David Cross is an English electric violinist, best known for playing with progressive rock band King Crimson during the 1970's (particularly on Larks' Tongues in Aspic and Starless and Bible Black).

David Jackson), nicknamed Jaxon, is an English progressive rock saxophonist, flautist, and composer. He is best known for his work with the band Van der Graaf Generator and his work in Music and Disability.

This brand new studio album, Another Day, released March 9th, 2018 via their own Cross & Jackson Music label, also features Mick Paul on bass, Craig Blundell on drums and was produced by Jake Jackson.

12. 'Time Gentlemen, Please'

The jaunty, slip-slide appeal of 'Predator' - which you would swear was a Was (Not Was) strain - kicks things off in saxophone style and is backed seamlessly by both the playful, operatic at time 'Bushido,' and then the slow groove of 'Last Ride.' The late night sultry heat is turned up on 'Going Nowhere' which is followed by the imaginative violin ode to Coltrane, 'Trane to Kiev.'

The pop synth of 'Millennium Toll' is one of my favorites, as it is just so breezy, so free of spirit that it actually enables you to clear your own mind of any junk in there whilst listening along to it. 'Arrival' is another delicate violin backed sax piece and is backed by the more forthright (and sounding like the theme tune to a '70s TV cop show) 'Come Again.'

'Breaking Bad' find both Cross and Jackson sparring with one another, and that is followed by the perfectly titled work of musical art for what we get next, 'Mr. Morose.' 'Anthem for Another Day' is a delightful little ditty, and then the album is rounded out with the shortest cut on the album, the just-over-a-minute long hazy 2am kick out headspace.

In closing, the 12 new tracks on this stunning new album showcase the talents of Cross and Jackson to perfection and will appeal to the fan bases of both artists and the bands they have been in. It's an innovative meeting of minds, that's for sure.
