Tukhmanov – On the Crest of My Memory
A puzzling cover to suit this equally puzzling composition by Soviet composer David Tukhmanov. But don’t think puzzling translates to questionable quality. On the contrary, this is a special album indeed which most certainly fits the bill as Progressive.
Tukhmanov was the composer of film scores in the 70s and 80s and several Russian Radio hits. On the Crest of My Memory from 1975 finds Tukhmanov riding a wave (pardon the pun) of creativity. Stylistically, he incorporates folk and symphonic elements, though the work as a whole does not really fall into either of these categories. This is one which may require more than the first listen to better appreciate (which is usually a mark of excellence).
