Album Notes
originally an umbrella for projects by carl kirkendall,
the zenpool has expanded to include some of the finest
musicians from the 'net scene.
the core members-
last year, the 1st addition came in the form of guitarist
steve hall,of newcastle-upon-tyne england's

("the eastside torpedos")that opened for such luminaries
as ray charles, buddy guy. steve's band was managed
by "the animals" bassist, the legendary chas (jimi hendrix)
von babasin joined our ranks as bassist w/ our 1st
full band, progressive rocker "MAJIKER".
von plays bass in jazz/fusion greats, L.A. band,
IOMA "artists of the year" ONOFFON.
von's a 2nd generation bassist, the son
of hollywood jazz great harry babasin of art pepper's
jazz band.
zenpool founder carl kirkendall does the keys, composing,
production,vocal chores from his home studio in seattle.
as solo zenpool,"kirk" went to the top of broadjam,
besonic(germany) mp3.com.au(australia)27 times in diverse genres.
last year, he won the IOMA award for "best producer".

Floydian Past
Smell a past Floydian here? Yes and ELP with a little of all the late 60 and 70's subliminal masters. No drugs required here though.
Kirk and the guys with a simple break by the right person at the right time could be heard on sound tracks of hundreds of movies we have all watched and the ones still to be made. Wanna get a real experience, shut all the lights off tune this CD, close your eyes and shut down the outside world. You will get several different feelings of pleasure and solefull pureism that you want to regain as soon as the song ends. I hope the afterlife holds such as this. Peace

Fine modern prog that recalls Synergy or Yes
Very good modern prog from a hi-tech internet collective led by Carl Kirkendall, with players zen-pooling their talents while recording in different places around the globe. The tracks are roughly divided between full band numbers and atmospheric synth soundscapes, the latter evoking Synergy around Cords or Audion (think On Presuming To Be Modern or Shibolet). The band tracks are tight, moody, heavily instrumental pieces offering that same Synergy flavor but with more epic touches creeping in. Majiker and Earthbound, for example, recall Yes around Tormato or Keystudio, especially as the occasional vocals sound like a subdued Jon Anderson. Steve Hall's excellent guitar parts led a fiery edge on Majiker and the opening Scirocco but still stay controlled and glossy, with some nice acoustic flourishes thrown in as well. To these ears, his electric parts also bring back out that Synergy flavor, echoing Russ Hamm's guitar synthesiser on Cords. One track, This Lonely Corner, shows a whole different side and recalls the Laurie Anderson contribution on Eno’s Drawn From Life, and is all the more beautiful for it. All around, an original prog discovery with considerable promise.
