5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest Albums Ever Made!!! 5 Jun 2011
By Sarmad
Format:Audio CD
I cannot praise this album enough. The first track establishes such a weird soundworld - a jazz ensemble of drippy, trippy guitar, trumpet, drums - with an electric bass AND a tuba for the bass! And then the second track is kinda funny, that is, humorous. But when you get to the third track, Rambler, you realise that you are actually listening to something truly astonishing. The melody here is so wonderful, the playing so sweet and humble and divine. You really do need to get on your cardiovascular machine and go floatin'. It's an oceanic experience, a bliss - and you can only really experience this feeling by first listening to the quirkiness of the two preludes that come first. When I listen to this I see all the colours and I experience all the feelings. I am so happy that I found this album. You remember when Messiaen described Turangalila as the kind of joy you can only discover after coming through a period of total desolation? Well, it's like that. Ok, let me try to explain. Imagine driving towards a rainbow that is illuminating a little woodland. It's a summer evening and the golden light is contrasted against the black sky ahead. But as you drive closer you realise that the rainbow is not receding into the distance, nor is it fading. Rather, it's getting closer and it's getting brighter! And then, as you move into the fourth track, 'When we Go' - a happy, hippy hymn - you actually realise that you are driving UNDERNEATH the rainbow. You look up, because you are in a convertible with the roof down, and you see the rainbow rising above you, like the supporting columns of a dome in heaven's temple. Look at those colours! Solid colours! Curving into the firmament above you. This is an album that may be best listened to on vinyl. I am going to have to find a copy. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Frisell gets horny 14 Nov 2009
By Tyrone Rex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Bill Frisell since I first heard him play on Fluid Russell by Eberhardt Weber in 1979. Alas, this record which was I believe his second solo for ECM is dominated by the brass/wind instruments. Frisell began his musical journey as a clarinet player in a marching band. Perhaps his relation to winds and brass has never left him. He has created music in many configurations and contexts. As a seeker of versatility, he is successful. I prefer the trio format he has used throughout his career. Some people will take their Frisell anyway they can,So this might be a welcome addition to a large Frisell collection. I think Fris is a team player, and he always lets his coplayers find room in his recordings to shine. Those fond of brass and Frisell will like this more than me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bill Frisell as he was before 23 Nov 2008

It is important to recognize an artist; so it is for this work of Frisell. It is undoubtly one of his best works, not corrupted from routine, as sometimes is happening in the last years
