Very melodic

Scott Yanow writes it off as being your typical (stereotypical!) ECM-album. I beg to differ because of the great melodies throughout the disk. The playing is more focused than the reviewer seems to suggest. Interesting...

They Say All Music Guide

Cellist David Darling, best known at the time for his long stint with Paul Winter’s Consort, mostly performs spacy ballads on this ECM release. Teamed up in different combinations (three unaccompanied solos, a duet, two trios and a quintet number) with Collin Walcott (who doubles on sitar and tabla), pianist Steve Kuhn, Jan Garbarek (on tenor and soprano), acoustic guitarist Oscar Castro-Neves and bassist Arild Andersen, Darling and his sidemen give the music a wide variety of sounds. However, the sleepy mood is very much in the stereotypical ECM mold, making this set mostly of interest for selected tastes. – Scott Yanow
