If you are expecting a "Chill Out" album,avoid this at all costs,for this is inteligent mood music,the swathes of sound that envelope you are pure and totally unique.
Being an ECM product,this is not a remix album ,it is a
"Sound structure" of various albums on ECM over its illustrious past.
This project takes in the music of Christian Wallumrod Ensemble/Paul Giger/Enrico Rava/Stefano Bolani/Paul Motian/Alexander Knaifel/Arvo Part/Bennie Maupin/John Abercrombie/Miroslav Vitous/Louis Sclavis and The Wolfert Brederode quartet all mixed into segue seamlessly
The music just flows effortlessly.
It is obvious that care has been taken to mix and record this album .
The thing that is noticable is that they havent gone for the obvious stars in ECMs Cannon,Hence no Garbarek,Surman or Stanko.
This is not a record to take lightly,there are some dark places hiding in the underground here,and should be approached accordingly, However there are some stunning pieces on this as well.
This is timelss but adventurous music,that in some ways reminds me of the experiments that "Tontos expanding head band"did on their "Zero time" album.
