Illesh’s first recorded solo outing is exactly that, one man and his acoustic guitar (or rather several acoustic guitars) played with impeccable timing, technique and feel. Like me, you could be forgiven for expecting the playing to be heavily influenced by Steve Howe but that’s not the case. Illesh doesn’t feel a need to indulge in a multitude of generic styles like jazz, blues, country or folk, instead the focus here is on light, but beautifully evocative melodies.

Listening to this collection it’s clear that this has been a labour of love for Illesh and suggests that he’s a romantic at heart... This is music for reflection, meditation or just simply enjoying.

“Fragile, I must say, pretty much knocked my socks off … they had it down. The guys were great…”

STEVE HOWE on Planet Rock Radio



“These guys are great - a unique opportunity to hear the music of Yes up front & personal.”
