    "Out to Sea" is the debut Instrumental Progressive Rock Album by Fernando Perdomo, guitarist and bassist of The Dave Kerzner Band.

    Funny the Bandcamp-page mentions the third track "De Boerdirij". It's "De Boerderij" of course, named after the famous prog-temple in Zoetermeer-The Netherlands.

    The album-scan sounds nice.

    The Gizmotron was made famous by Godley & Creme on their triple-album Consequences.

    Thanks, I passed that spelling correction on to him - hopefully he has time to get it fixed by the printers.

    Nice sample/tease. I love this sort of instrumental prog.

    Got my CD in the mail yesterday. A really nice album, with some brief but fun liner notes, and dedicated to all the classic Prog artists who’ve passed recently.

    sounds interesting
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    It's all well done, well composed but doesn't overstay its welcome. Also, in case anyone was wondering and didn't listen to the album on Bandcamp, real drums. Fernando is a true instrumentalist, and has does other album where he plays most of everything, and has livestreamed himself working on songs, recording drums, guitar parts, keyboards, composing, etc. The other albums of his that I've heard are pop, but with interesting sonics and for the most part interesting, catchy songs. And he's produced a ton of albums for other artists (Linda Perhacs new album, for one), and played on some of them.

    This album is really, really good - very melodic and carefully crafted tunes and very well played. I have most of his poppy stuff, which is good, but this one really took me by surprise.

    His pop stuff is a lot of fun, and well done.

    This is definitely interesting to me. I first heard of him because of his Dreaming In Stereo and comparisons to Todd Rundgren. I remember liking it, but it has been a long time since I've heard any of his solo stuff.

    I’m really liking this song, he has a knack for writing very simple lyrics that work and are clever.

    I like the lines “I want a girl with a record collection, I want a girl with cool imperfections”

    And “I found a girl who inspires me, I found a girl who desires me”

    Simple but perfect rhymes I feel like I haven’t heard before (though they seem like Sinatra might have sung them too).

    Just listened to Fernando’s album “Out to Sea 2” for the first time. It’s an excellent album. Fans of earlier Camel should not miss this album! Confident, tuneful instrumental Prog in the classic style.

    Fernando is a shining star on the modern prog scene. He's more than just a prog guy too. Check him out backing up Jacob Dylan in that new documentary Echo In The Canyon too....
