Fans of Roz Vitalis should really enjoy their new live album Elephant Live.
The record features 4 tracks from their latest studio album and three new ones that are just as good. The band features a new drummer that spices up their sound in this live setting, and they added a saxophone player Ilya Belorukov that adds some avant-garde jazz flavours to their music. David Jackson fans (i.e. Van Der Graaf Generator) should really enjoy his contribution.
Roz Vitaliz' music remains melodic classic prog and Camel/Happy The Man influences are present all over this very good album. The concert recording is excellent and the band is in top form.
