Chronicles of Man is inspired by the landscape of Rick Wakeman's
adopted, er, tax haven, the Isle of Man. And it would be fair to assume
that Man has more than enough cultural heritage - from Stone Age
tombs to the shores where Viking invaders landed, from crumbling
monasteries to Civil War strongholds - to keep the prodigious one
in conceptual Steinway piano pieces until the Celts come home.
Meanwhile, Chronicles of Man (the title - no nodding off at the
back of the history class there - comes from the writings of
14th-century Manx Cistercian monks) has all the dexterous ornamentation
and peaceable air of classic Wakeman, from the frivolous frills and
trills of "Jester at Court" to the folksy gaiety of "Peasants' Dance."
Imagine the fun we'd have if he ever moves to Cuba.
