A Progressive / Symphonic Instrumental Masterpiece featuring music from the realms of and influenced by: GENESIS / STEVE HACKETT to VANGELIS and beyond!INHALING GREEN’  comes Remastered from the original tapes with 2 Bonus Tracks and packaged with re-vamped art in a Mini LP Gatefold Card Sleeve! Having served his musical apprenticeship in the 70’s with the Symphonic rockers The ENID, Nick Magnus became Steve Hackett’s keyboard player during the guitarist’s rise to fame as a solo artist, following his departure from GENESIS. Since the mid 90’s Nick has released a string of superbly crafted solo albums, one of which is ‘Inhaling Green’. Originally issued in 1999, this timeless masterpiece was Nick’s second album and it has now been given a long overdue and thoroughly well deserved makeover. Virtually 100% instrumental, this album takes the listener on a course across a wide musical spectrum. Always engaging and truly melodic, it touches on several genres: Progressive, Jazz-Rock, Symphonic Thematic music and so much more besides. Musically, ‘Inhaling Green’ will appeal to fans of artists like: STEVE HACKETT or VANGELIS and bands such as GENESIS, YES, KING CRIMSON & the MOODY BLUES – It’s classy, heartfelt music from a multi-talented keyboards craftsman with an incredible skill for both arranging and production! This is inspired instrumental Synth and Symphonic Prog-Rock music all rolled up into one epic film theme styled album that is as wide ranging in its scope as it is in its variation – one of THE finest keyboard based albums you’ll have the pleasure of listening to …that’s why it warrants this re-issue. ‘Inhaling Green’ has all the great instrumental elements you could wish for in an album of this type, and much more besides – Often it is neo-classical symphonic with grandiose majestic themes multi-layered in lavish keyboard flourishes. There’s a commercial edge to the catchy, tune-laden rhythmic cut: ‘Cantus’, covering an area once occupied by ENIGMA, then enters Rock territory with Magnus’s anthemic cover of George Martin’s ‘Theme One’, a massive sounding late 60’s track made famous by VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR - Magnus makes this his own with some very special touches! The keyboard sounds come in many guises - Mellotron, Moog, Hammond organ, piano, string-synth and more, but the album also boasts some of the finest melodic soaring electric guitar work around, courtesy of Geoff Whitehorn (CRAWLER / RAINBOW / PROCOL HARUM)! There’s also some beautifully tasteful flute parts courtesy of Steve Hackett‘s brother John and as tight a rhythm section as you‘ll get, which is amazingly all coming courtesy of Nick Magnus himself!
