This review is from: To the Eyes of Creation (Audio CD)
In my opinion, this is his best album, capturing as it does the many facets of this superb British musician's technical and creative ability. All of the tracks are memorable but my particular favourite is the first "The Healing Song". It's a very simple melody taken at an easy tempo with Courtney's sax sounding very Getz-like with a beautiful full and mellow tone and the accompanyment is perfect.To show his allegiance to Coltrane, he makes it interesting by going off into some wild improvisation halfway through, before going back to the main theme. This is one which stays in your head such is it's simple beauty.
"Psalm", based on the 23rd Psalm melody is similar and memorable. "Eastern Standard Time" is a return to Pine's West Indian roots- a rhythmic calypso style number with a basically simple melody. Not jazz as we know it at the start, but then the Coltrane-inspired improvisation midway through the number changes that. The remaining tracks are mostly of a high standard too.
An excellent example of the work of Britain's best contemporary jazz musician.
