Without question, Bill Bruford is the greatest drummer of his generation, with a creative thirst unmatched by any other working artist. This recording, visually as well as sonically, is a joy! The remarkable interplay among the musicians delivers a cross-polination of ideas that build to a veritable rhythmic tsunami. There is no rock-star preening or inane pounding. Instead you have subtlety, nuance, grace and daring at every turn. The melifluous streams flow Arican, Hispanic and European, pouring forth as this one irrepressible world rhythmic cadence. The essential instrument for dance has always been percussion and it is here in spades, obviously, with enough inspiration to have you discard any concern for a top melody line and dropping you right into the essence of a groove. This is a brilliant recording by any standard of measure. Considering it is from Bill Bruford, we should not be surprised!
