Seriously Deep, Seriously Beautiful.,
This review is from: Silent Feet: COLOURS (Audio CD)
To think that one of the greatest recorded performances of the 20th century lurks deep in the bowels of Amazon UK with just one review - and a four star one at that, is to me, one the great human tragedies. This album oozes a lyrical beauty guaranteed to make your cortex throb for decades (around three for me so far). Further, I have still yet to hear recording and production quality to better this - and I am an avid consumer of CD's and Vinyl.
Each piece is sumptuously produced and played by some of the planet's greatest living musicians - Eberhard Weber (bass), Rainer Bruninghaus (piano), Charlie Mariano (sax), and John Marshall (drums). In fact, Marshall's drumming here is so good that this album would still be worth the maximum stars had it been a totally solo performance. Together, the band produce music that would have made Mozart wet himself had he heard it. Take the finest moments from Jazz, Classical and Post-Rock, place in blender, add the rarest beauty of the universe, press play and await the arrival of your spirit. It won't take long.
If you are reading this and are capable of breathing and thinking at the same time, then you really must buy this album. It is at the very pinnacle of human artistic achievement and should be played to the aliens when they eventually turn up, as I am sure this is what they will come looking for.
