Good, maybe even great, but not my thing July 1, 2009

This music, while great, shows that RF would not have been a very effective fusion guy (assuming that "fusion guy" was a title to which he would have aspired).
To me personally, I now understand why 81-84 Crim rarely goes six weeks without getting some play in my home, while Bruford’s One Of A Kind gets the once a year treatment, and the answer is most emphatically NOT that the latter is anything less than fantastic music performed by musicians who mean it.
The key difference, IMO, is originality. 81-84 KC has it to the extent that the music does not lend itself to categorization. BB’s work with Jeff Berlin, on the other hand, is fusion.

I’ll second Mr Flaherty’s comments on the sound. The most noticeable distortion is on the most violent sections of the music towards the end and to me it actually adds Read more

In a recent piece for DGM, I mentioned how wonderful this particular evening of soundscapes was. I am, of course, delighted to see this same performance become available.
In honesty, I actually expected, after 12 years, to be Read more

I remember this show well. Perhaps I remember this as my favorite of Mr. Fripp’s Boston soundscape visits. Though the jam packed Boston House of Blues show from a few years earlier is another standout show (for its intense audience Read more

In regards to "Shall We Listen to That, I wrote "Discipline is one of my all time favorites, and I truly enjoyed getting a glimpse of its infancy. Thank you! " It applies here as Read more

This came up on the ipod on random play. Thought it was a Queens of the Stone Age bonus track. I kept expecting to hear Josh Homme start singing!

Apart from the natural excitement and intrigue of hearing the creative process unfolding in real time, one of the most interesting things about the series of tracks from these sessions is to hear the group dynamic, and compare it to the Read more

At first listen it kinda reminds me of Jade Warrior if anyone remembers them. Nice dreamlike quality with an atmospheric touch.

People have noted that the audio quality of this recording is not perfect. I feel fortunate that I am more of a musicophile than an audiophile. I have minor hearing problems: people are always re-adjusting my equalizer as Read more

Wow. This may just be the perfect soundscapes - for me at least. The mood is definitely darker, but more importantly deeper, too. It unsettles (Queer Space), disturbs (Threnody and Foreboding), and soothes (Acceptance and Resolution) in a way that none Read more
