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 Brufordís 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. BBís work with Jeff Berlin, on the other hand, is fusion.

I was not at this evening, although I witnessed all the Bay Area shows. Sounds surprisingly good considering the source, and the music is fantastic. Thanks for a real treat, DGM!

This is jaw-dropping, astonishing music. Itís not at all easy listening, especially the first two tracks. In terms of sheer density, 1999 is about perhaps the most similar Soundscape recording. But this is far more varied and multicolored than Read more
