Proto-Kaw is the latest project from former Kansas guitarist, Kerry Livgren. Kansas actually went through three lineup changes before being signed and Proto-Kaw is made up of musicians who formed the second reincarnation.
The song Scont has a nice blend of horns, keys and the kind of Prog-Rock you'd expect from Livgren. Kerry wrote a lot of Kansas' material including two of their biggest hits, Dust In The Wind and Carry On My Wayward Son.
Sadly, Kerry suffered a severe stroke on September 1st, and is now recovering. There is no word on whether he will be able to continue playing music, but I wanted to wish him all the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
