Album Review: "Behind the Curtain—Live at ProgStock" By Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius (10/10)

Melodic Revolution Records

As the new violinist in Kansas, Deninzon is getting well-deserved accolades. But this live 2CD/2DVD package from 2019/2021 captures the seeds of his solo endeavors. Songs like “Release” and “Impostor” feature inspired Hendrix-like abandon on his custom Viper fiddle. There are also some surprising guests, with pianist/flautist Rachel Flowers and guitarist Alex Skolnick joining in on Chick Corea’s “Spain.” – Eric Harabadian
