This is one of my all-time favorite albums. It is a treasure, obscure and almost impossible to find, so if you're reading this, you must be looking for something special. Well, you found it. Danny Thompson, earlier famed for his role in Pentangle, teams up with reed and wind player Tony Roberts and guitarist Bernie Holland on this amazing musical event. This trio produces a thick and complex palette of sound, driven by the amazing power of Danny's acoustic double bass, which functions alternately as melody, bottom and rhythm section (no drums), and sometimes all three simultaneously. As to whether it is jazz - well, it's Euro-jazz. Tony's sax reminds me of Norwegian Jan Garbarek, a standard-bearer in that sub-genre. These guys are very adept jazz players, but the music is much more deeply rooted in European folk traditions and it's looking through the folk lens that brings this music into sharpest and sweetest focus. But forget the genres - when you're in the middle of that swirl of emotions that only the finest music can bring, you really won't notice that what you are hearing might be a blend of jazz, Scottish pipes and flameco, as it is on "Lovely Joan", which has gradually emerged as my favorite track. The other five standout tracks are the frolicking "Idle Monday", the flamenco guitar and flute of "Yucateca", the earthy sax-driven jazz ballad "Lament for Alex", the frenetic battle landscapes of "Crusader", and the snappy sax extravaganza "Minor Escapade". Don't listen to track samples and think too much - buy it! You won't just be satisfied, you'll be thrilled. (Amazon review)
