  • I just found Grandine il Vento / Symphony of Light from 2013. It's solid, with just a few stand-out tracks. Feels like a collection of songs instead of an album that must be listened in its entirety. Not a bad thing, just personal preference. That's what I like about the old albums, each album feels like a journey.
  • Hi everyone! I'm from a project called "Fleesh" and we've just released a tribute to Renaissance. We did a version of "Opening Out". Hope you like it! https://youtu.be/pH8PyeimLa4
  • John Tout's lenghty piano work really made the band special
  • Man, I didn't even hear the news. That's horrible. Tout was the instrumental backbone of Renaissance's best work. I can't even imagine the records without him. R.I.P.
  • RIP. He was an influential presence.
  • RIP John
  • R.I.P :-( Underrated keyboard player...
  • rip John Tout :(
  • Latest album $5 this month at Amazon.
