This is a great record, which I bought at the time on vinyl and I'm delighted that ECM has finally re-released it on CD. The recording is a wonderful mixture of space, light and echo and the blending of acoustic, classical and electric guitars is masterful. The standout track for me in terms of performance, composition, sound and improvisation is The Juggler's Etude which was originally a classical guitar study written by Ralph Towner. It's a magical piece of music played with verve and brio and I love it! Just for the record I heard John Abercrombie this week in a duo with Marc Copland and the same lyrical, slightly mysterious, spacious improvisation is still there. They play harmonious and melodic lines and it all intricately fits together in a luminous sound world. I also saw Ralph Towner do a solo classical guitar gig a couple of years back and he too was sounding awesome, performing and improvising on all his own beautiful compositions. So, I can highly recommend the album and the live gigs of both of these fine musicians - do go and hear them if you get the chance.
