“The Journey Continues” is a live album from DJABEe & Steve Hackett on the Esoteric Antenna label that is available as a 2-CD + 1-DVD edition. Primarily recorded in Nyiregyhaza, Hungary in August 2019, this concert continues a series of live collaborative performances. This album followed the release of one of Hungary’s most acclaimed Jazz groups, Djabe, collaborating with former Genesis guitarist, the legendary solo artist Steve Hackett as heard on “Life is a Journey: The Sardinia Tapes.” That earlier album was the result of improvised sessions that took place in a church on the island of Sardinia.
This new release “The Journey Continues” captures on two CDs and a DVD Djabe & Steve Hackett performing selections from that album on the concert stage, along with classic Genesis material such as “Hairless Heart,” “Firth of Fifth,” and “Los Endos.” Plus, Steve Hackett’s “Last Train to Istanbul” and Djabe compositions.
The NTSC Region Free DVD also includes the bonus tracks “In That Quiet Earth” and “After Limoncello,” recorded in St. Veit, Austria in 2018 and “White Bears,” recorded in Washington DC in 2019. The DVD contains both 5.1 surround and 2.0 stereo mixes of the album.
Released May 28, 2021.
