Patrick Moraz : The Story Of I,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен.

The Story of I is the first solo album by former Yes keyboard player Patrick Moraz, released in June 1976. After the success of Relayer, the band Yes made a decision that next, each member would make a solo album. The Story of I is the first solo album by Patrick Moraz. By the time the album was released, Moraz was still touring with Yes but he was let go by the band in late 1976 after Rick Wakeman was booked on a session musician basis during the Going for the One recording sessions in Switzerland.

Gatefold sleeve with lyrics and an inner sleeve with handwriting explaining the musical layout/arrangements of the tracks. Recorded Autumn '75 in 'Aquarius' Studio, Geneva. Sessions in Brazil, 16th and 17th August '75).

Keyboardist Patrick Moraz, well-known from his work in the band YES during Relayer era was releasing with The Story of I his first solo album after his demise from YES. It's a piece of work that is regarded as masterly by some people whereas others including me cannot really appreciate this stuff presented here. This quite unique blend seams to work still in the first track Impact. But after this one the album really starts to become annoying. Obviously Patrick Moraz used to love a lot latin american rhythms and so he was trying here to integrate a complete brazilian percussion group into this album with the result of a catastrophic failure. Just because most of the music is rather rooted in the western "white" pop-rock style, so the whole album is sounding in some way not coherent at all, more like an arbitrary patchwork.

Patrick Philippe Moraz (born 24 June 1948) is a Swiss musician, film composer and songwriter, best known for his tenures as keyboardist in the rock bands Yes and the Moody Blues. Born in Morges into a musical family, Moraz learned music at a young age and studied at the Lausanne Conservatory. He began a music career in the 1960s as a jazz musician, performing with his quartet and quintet that performed across Europe and won several awards.

The Story Of I is the debut solo studio album of Patrick Moraz and was released in 1976. The line up on the album is Patrick Moraz, John McBurnie, Vivienne McAulife, Ray Gomez, Jean de Antoni, Jeff Berlin, Alphonse Mouzon, Andy Newmark and the Percussionists of Rio de Janeiro. Patrick Moraz is a Swiss progressive rock keyboardist with a classical musical education acquired at the Conservatory of Lausanne, in Switzerland. He also played jazz primarily before entering into the progressive rock world and he has also been highly acclaimed for his musical virtuosity

Former Yes and Moody Blues keyboardist Patrick Moraz mixes numerous Latin and rock rhythms together via his lively synth work, resulting in a full-flavored, energetic album. Not typical sounding to say the least, there are hints of funk and marimba, Caribbean and South American styles, and even flamenco, all guided by Moraz's whirlwind keyboard playing. Inspired by the Brazilian ballet, each song dances with piquancy and flow, never repeating the same rhythms or sounds while at the same time introducing a wide variety of percussion instruments  . The Story of I is a refreshing twist from this progressive craftsman and can sincerely be appreciated by all audiences.
