Blaze and Bloom was recorded live in April of 2010 at Club STB 139 in Tokyo, Japan and Club Janus in Osaka, Japan. ProgRock-fusion virtuoso Corrado Rustici (Brain, Nova) recruited the talents of drummer Steve Smith (Journey) and keyboard player Peter Vettese (Jethro Tull) – “two of the best musicians whom I’ve ever had the fortune and pleasure to play with,” says Rustici, who further acknowledges them “for breathing life into the music with their exceptional talent”.

As you might expect, the level of performance is resolute throughout, and yet every composition has its own unique flavor. Catch a glimpse of the trio’s live performance here.
