Profile
Originally formed by keyboardists Andy Tillison and Sam Baine of Parallel or 90 Degrees and The Flower Kings' guitarist Roine Stolt, bassist Jonas Reingold, and drummer Zoltan Csörsz. The septet was completed by renowned saxophonist David Jackson of Van der Graaf Generator and multi-instrumentalist Guy Manning. The band was scheduled only to be a "one-off" project but has endured far beyond that beginning. The Tangent has had numerous changes in personnel resulting in Tillison being the only member to have been on all the recordings.
