about

(1987 - Mellow Records reissue: 1992)

Winds of May is the only artifact left half-finished by
The Odeja in 1987. Apparently the band had achieved
some level of notoriety on the club circuit back in 1986-87.
At the time they featured two guitarists, two keyboardists,
and two sax players, and their sound was fairly jazz-oriented.
They soon lost a guitarist and a sax player, but the remaining members consolidated and made plans to record.
They had several songs ready to record, but after laying
down four tracks, internal dissensions caused
the band to dissolve.
Thus all we have to remember them are the four unfinished
tracks that were subsequently rescued by Mauro Moroni and the Mellow Records.
As far as the music goes, there are several samples,
both in the website link and on the band videos.
I would describe them as a keyboard based, jazz-tinged
product of the 1987 state of prog, with some nice melodies
and chord progressions.
The sax adds a lot of color, as do the twin keyboard attack.
Luisa's voice is pleasant.
