It's important to recognize where you came from. Asia Featuring John Payne certainly do. This full-length, Recollections, reignites classic British progressive rock songs with a fresh fire. It sees the groupâ€'Payne [lead vocals, bass, keys], Jay Schellen [drums], Erik Norlander [keys], Jeff Kollman [guitar], and Moni Scaria [guitar]â€'imbue each track with its own distinct stamp. Recollections makes for musical memories worth treasuring. In 2011, serendipity jumpstarted the project for Payne. While sitting in his Southern California one day, he heard the Yes song 'It Can Happen' and instantly felt inspired. 'I thought it would be a really cool song to record a cover of,' he says. 'Shortly after, I heard a Jethro Tull track driving home. I thought it would be really exciting to put together a collection of these songs. It's something I never thought I'd do in the past. They're such influential songs for me. For a band like Asia Featuring John Payne who doesn't normally do covers, it was an interesting spin.' One by one, his band mates contributed to the project as they tackled classics from the likes of King Crimson. Throughout the sessions, they managed to infuse their signature styles into the originals, while reverentially paying homage to the respective artists. <br><br>TRACK LISTING: <br>1.
