The one-man-band concept is flourishing these days as shown by Redjy Emond,  Covenant, Louie Mastro (rip Louie) so i give you Doracor's "The Long Pathway". Doracor  is Corrado Sardella (oh a word-play!) on various (unidentified) keyboards and synths, synth drums, and synth bass. This 9-track, 61 minute outing has more of a symphonic orchestral feel than Covenant  (IMHO), and isn't quite as dark or gothic. Rather, he uses his digital keyboards to paint multi layers of orchestral textures which he then proceeds to dance atop of with nimble-fingered soloing of all kinds using many different lead lines. He's got good speed and chops, just a touch short of Wakeman's neighborhood. his is a very solid outing, (his second) and i'd rate it a tad below Redjy Emond's superlative "Sphere". This is a '97 release by Mellow.
