ZELLO - FIRST CHAPTER, SECOND VERSE
A release full of elaborate themes, rich arrangements and sophisticated orchestration is offered up by Zello on First Chapter, Second Verse.  Originally released in 1996, the album has had a sonic overhaul thanks to the addition of fine guitar work from Janne Stark (Locomotive Breath).   Fans of classic Kansas and Magnum will revel in the musical treat that is First Chapter, Second Verse.
