Taking Flight TERRY DAUN
Looking for a little variety? Well, this album has a little of everything, from hard rock to jazz, and ambient, there is something for everyone.
From Aural Innovations #36 (May 2007)
He says his music is psychedelic...
It’s mostly a jazz/rock fusion sort of thing in the vein of Alan Holdsworth, Jan Hammer, Jean-Luc Ponty etc. Just listen to tracks like “My Watch”, “She Speaks” or “Seedz”. Terry’s other influences include Rundgren, Zappa and Jeff Beck, for example.
I do enjoy his more ambient pieces, though, and some of them are a bit psychedelic. A good example is the peaceful and hypnotic “Logan Ran” that is actually very enjoyable as well as the mystical “Not Far”.
There is also a bit heavier stuff in there with some electric guitar. The bit darker “April” reminds me of Space Mirrors and is quite okay. “Tax” features a heavy guitar riff, sequences and a great guitar solo by a guy named Jose Diaz. “Psycho” begins in a minimal mood and has some exciting synth stuff to create a bit psychedelic atmosphere.

Terry Daun “She Speaks”. This track is an instrumental with a jazz feel. It is well layered... It has the feel of some of the older instrumental tracks I would imagine on bands such as Rush or Yes’ albums. It’s also pretty trippy, so give it a listen!
