Ryo Okumoto is not only the keyboardist of the American prog rock formation Spock´s Beard, with whom he has regularly released highly praised albums since 1997, but is also known and respected as a studio and guest musician for international stars such as Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Eric Burdon and Al Green—as well as the legendary scene surrounding Toto (Bobby Kimball, Steve Lukather, Jeff Porcaro, Simon Phillips). Okumoto has also been producing his own solo albums, notably Solid Gold (1980) and Treasured Moments (1996/97) since 1980. The album consists of eight songs, three of which were composed by Ryo alone and four others which were written and composed together with his Spock´s Beard colleague, Neal Morse. The eighth track is by Spock´s Beard drummer Nick D´Virgilio. Amongst the vocalists who Ryo was able to win for the album, one finds not only Morse (who sings the title track, ´Coming Through`) and D´Virgilio, but also Glenn Hughes, formerly of Deep Purple (´Highway Roller`) and Toto´s Bobby Kimball (´Slipping Down`) as well as Ryo´s wife Linda Green-Okumoto. The role of drummer was filled by Nick D´Virgilio, Simon Phillips and Okumoto’s eleven year old son, Sage. Bass players on the album include Dave Meros (Spock´s Beard / Eric Burdon) and Kenny Wild (Natalie Cole etc), whilst the guitar work was carried out by Steve Lukather, Michael Landau and Jun Sumida. On Coming Through, Okumoto’s aim was to re-arrange his best compositions of the last twenty years and to align them more with the directives laid down by the progressive rock which has so much become his musical passion. Apart from that, he wanted to work with his friend Neal Morse and bring to life several very special numbers. The most impressive of these is certainly the 19 minute long song, ´Close Enough
