Beginnings (Kenso, 1985)

I love this instrumental track by Kenso very much. It's the closing one from "Kenso III" album, a miracle of balance between prog rock, jazzy influences and melody. These Japanese musicians really are a surprising and uncompromising band, and their "Beginnings" proves what I'm saying by its various and liquid beauty.

Kenso released 10 studio albums from 1980 and 2014.
 
You'll find here a mix of basic sounds framed in a composite pattern, full of grace and colours, far from any useless display of virtuosity and aimed to an emotional impact instead. A palette of feelings draw an Eastern, inner skyline, a moving picture and an everchanging soul. So many instruments cooperate to trace a single path going down to each listener's secret garden. An almost spiritual trip I highly recommend.
