Kit Watkins - Kinetic Vapors

Artist: Kit Watkins
P: 1993

Energetic, still, flowing, coiling, high-spirited, curious, accessible, obscure, intuitive, logical, and great listening.“Kinetic Vapors” holds 54 minutes of music in eight pieces composed and recorded from January through July 1993 at Kit’s studio. The album successfully juxtaposes the organic with the electronic through the tasteful use of live instruments, synthesizers, and samplers. The songs are subtle and hypnotic. With each listening, they became like old friends. A joy while we are together, a small, sad loss when it is over, a quiet anticipation until we meet again.

Kit Watkins - Labyrinth

Artist: Kit Watkins
P: 1980 / 2000

This is the 1st solo outing from the ex-Camel and ex-Happy the Man keyboardist and is one of the finest of the genre. Kit has long been known for his ability to add color and heart to the synthesizer. In this disc, he displays his signature pitch bending and orchestral chording along with a degree of manual dexterity that is startling. Comparisons to Jan Hammer have been made although for my money Kit has far more taste and sublety.
Kit plays keyboards, flute, nylon guitar and assorted percusion. He is supported by former Happy the Man drummer Coco Roussell who does a magnificent job of handling the 5/4, 7/4 and other odd timing.
A lot of prog rock from the 70's and 80's has a dated sound. This one has remained fresh and interesting for 20 years.

Kit Watkins - Wet, Dark and Low

Artist: Kit Watkins
P: 1992

Like Brian Eno, Kit Watkins possesses two main musical alter-egos. One side composes ambient music; the other captures the very chaos of modern living, interpreted through modern musical idioms. Wet, Dark and Low, his latest, is of the latter style, with similarities to Eno's recent Nerve Net. Ritualistic in its driving currents of percussive sounds, Watkins exposes inner demons and "Wild Man" tendencies, right down to the Robert Bly quote on the back and "Setting Iron John Free." Two tracks feature guitarist Carl Weingarten with his Fripp-like slide guitar and effects. The 12-minute "Cell Division" joins strange effects and voices with alien space creatures dancing in the streets, while the closing "Still Hope" is a thought-provoking ballad of survival and emergence.
