Don Airey – Light in the Sky

a-light-in-the-skyFor ‘A Light in The Sky’, Airey has gathered together a different set of collaborators (Laurence Cottle of Sting/Eric Clapton/Brian Eno/Bill Bruford fame once again contributes precision bass-playing), though naturally Don provides the record’s central creative thrust – an entertaining mixture of instrumental and vocal songs, from the Bladerunner-style ‘Ripples In The Fabric Of Time’ to the hook-laden hard rock of ‘Shooting Star’. And as the record’s title might suggest, there is a central unifying thread of space and space travel.

The album also features violin virtuoso Lidia Baich.
