Happy the Man

Happy the Man was an American progressive rock band from the 1970's specializing in instrumental tracks with complex time signatures. They were one of the finest 70's American prog bands. Completely out of the american standards, Happy the Man combined lush melodies, great complex interplay and a slightly jazzy touch with occasional vocals. Their first two albums, the self titled Happy the Man and Crafty Hands (almost entirely instrumental) are classic albums of the highest order. Read more here.
