Reza Khan – "Imaginary Road" – Painted Media

Khan poetically and philosophically describes the lilting yet sparkling, uber-melodic, easy grooving light funk title track “Imaginary Road” as “a journey open to limitless imaginary landscapes to shape our future from the canvas we leave behind.” Contemplating those bold words, we can embrace his graceful rhythmic acoustic guitar as it weaves over Philippe Saisse’s subtle old school synth whimsy. Reflecting not only the momentum of Khan’s career and musical evolution but our own resolve as we break through to more expansive emotional and spiritual horizons, the road takes a dynamic turn into a true drive time jam, elevated by Matt King’s wild piano magic, richly detailed sound scaping, David Mann’s unbridled sax and even a swelling choir of wordless vocals in the outro.
