Progressive Rock artists from across the world in a limited edition
collection titled CPR.
release introduces the newest members of the CPR community including Unitopia,
Apple Pie, Ted Leonard, Mike Florio, Pursuit, Mike Lockett, Ad Astra, Time
Horizon, Greg Wollan and Everlasting Arms.
of the highlights in this volume is a song by veteran rocker Phil Keaggy.
The Keaggy tune “Passport” originally appeared on his 1985 release entitled
“Getting Closer”. Produced by CPR’s own Randy George and mixed by Gene
Crout, the song also features Ajalon drummer Dan Lile. Together they have
reworked this classic Phil Keaggy song which now graces the CPR 3 release in an
extended form. “We are all excited to have Phil join us on this
release,” co-producer Randy George says. “He is one of the first
artists that helped to expand and shape the musical horizons of the faithful.
Since the late 1960’s he has pushed musical boundaries, and remains one of the
most prolific guitarists of our time. It was an honor for Dan and I to play
with him on this song.”
Dan and Randy also are featured on a song from CPR newcomer Mike

Wil Henderson and Randy George were also featured guests on a
new release called "Reflections
- An Act of Glass: The Music of Andrew Gorczyca".
The recorded work from Seattle drummer Chris G is
a tribute CD of the music of his late brother Andrew, and is the culmination of nearly four years’
effort devoted to countless sessions of studio recording time. At its core, the music would
fall into the progressive rock category - given some of the elaborate arrangements and
instrumentation. A total of eighteen progressive rock players were recorded in
twelve different studios located in six different American cities. This host of
artists associated with the genre (including Adrian Belew, Nick D’Virgilio,
Phil Keaggy, and Mike Keneally) provided the cast of players sought by Chris to
re-create Andrew’s music with professional flair and credibility. Wil [vocals]
and Randy [bass] appear together on the track "Lost In It All" which also features Adrian Belew on
guitar. Randy also played some synth solos on the opening track "The Tall Tale Heart" and Wil sang
all the vocals on the track "From This Day Forward", which also features Phil Keaggy on guitar.
George is currently reworking songs for a new solo CD. This CD will be
a full band sound and mostly instrumental with Progressive and Fusion flavors
along with some Contemporary Jazz sounding tunes. There will be guest
performances by Michael Manring, Phil Keaggy, Dave Beegle, Neal Morse, David
Ragsdale, Taylor Mesple, David Wallimann, Gene Crout, Paul Kilkenny and Dan
Lile. Some snippets of this project can be heard here.
