Quirky Arrangements, Brooding Themes and Exotic Time-Signatures Collide on this Retrospective Collection. Volaré was an instrumental prog/fusion ensemble from Athens, Georgia, USA, active in the mid-1990s. While the music of Britain's legendary Canterbury scene (Soft Machine, Hatfield & The North, Egg, National Health, Caravan) provided a jumping-off point for Volare's style, 'Memoirs...' captures the band in full stride, already exhibiting their own unique take on 'progressive rock' well before their 1997 full-length album, 'The Uncertainty Principle'. Exuberant Instrumental Rock Inspired by the Canterbury Scene, the Fusion Greats & the Prog Legends of the '70s. This CD displays the group's own brand of energetic, complex jazz-rock, courtesy of vintage keyboard tones and neo-classical instrumentation. 'Memoirs...' features all five tracks from the band's 1995 self-titled debut and adds three previously unreleased songs, including a tune recorded especially for this album in 1999. .
