An underrated German band, whose only album is another excellent shot of symphonic rock plenty of changes and melodical richness, really complex and elaborated. Sad Cypress" is a highly recommended album for those who like '70s symphonic rock in the traditional vein. And one particularity: Keyboardist Ulrich Sommerlatte had 65 years old when "Sad Cypress" was released. Basic symphonic progressive Genesis influenced band.
Ivory (5). Sad Cypress (Cass, Album). Jupiter Records, Jupiter Records. 402 428, 402 428-352. This album was recorded in 1979, released in 1980 on Jupiter Records. Now I won't say this is groundbreaking or mindblowing, but still a pretty fine slice of late '70s Genesis-inspired symphonic prog! For some strange reason Prog Archives has Ivory categorized as "Psychedelic/Space Rock", which I can't understand, this is very much a symphonic prog album. As for that "space rock" element is the spacy Eloy-ish keyboards, that's it. This album is often dismissed, as too many of these Genesis-influenced bands, but of these kind of bands it's certainly.

Ivory 1979 Sad Cypress. Both Musea Records and Belle Antique have re-issued the album, which now features four bonus tracks recorded between 1983 and 1987. The sound recalls acts like early IQ and ABEL GANZ, being a bit more synth-based with some Electronic touches here and there but deeply rooted in 70's progressive music with melodic guitar work, symphonic arrangements and warm, sensitive vocals
