English/Australian session musician supergroup Sky specialized in combining a variety of musical styles, most prominently rock and classical. The group's best known members were classical guitarist John Williams, bass player Herbie Flowers (a former member of Blue Mink and T. Rex) and Francis Monkman, a founding member of progressive rock band Curved Air. Sky's fifth album, 1984's Cadmium saw the band implementing both new sounds and collaborators. In addition to their classical-rock arrangement of Prokofiev's "Sleigh Ride," the release features commissioned compositions by contemporary writers from outside the group including Alan Tarney, who provided two original tunes.
