5.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic Jamband shock, 24 Jun. 2008
By 
This review is from: E.S.T. - Live in Hamburg (Audio CD)
I wish to second the appreciation of 13 min plus jams.
(1)they allow you to reach a full appreciation of the music whilst simultaneously allowing you sufficient time to qualf a foaming pint of ale without incurring excess wind."Definition of a dog" even allows you that extra half pint.
(2) Long jams discourage the casual ne'er do well's and light-weights - a simple process of sorting the men from the boys. "Delores in a shoestand" has the added bonus of the sort of phasing which usually gets the average jazz buff reaching for their graphic equalizer.
(3) It allows players to chance to compete with their peers on a musical basis thus removing the need to resort to illicit drugs and/or indulge themselves all-night shennanigans. Obviously the Grateful Dead are the exception that proves the rule.The opener "Tuesday Wonderland" comes on like Radiohead without the three moany gits on guitar (I realise that doesn't leave much of the band but you get my drift.)
(4) Miles liked long rambles and whatever Miles liked is fine by me.
(5) It aids restful sleep and cramming before exams - although hopefully not at the same time. I don't do exams so I tend to sleep a lot. Some may say this is a draw back but I like CD's that cause a certain drowsyness. It's not a criticism!
(6) It assists comfort breaks to be taken during concerts without ruining more than one tune - if you are one of the musicians you presumably have a catheter at the ready before embarking on your solo. "The rube thing" as as number two on the set list must have some bladders straining even at this early point in proceedings. To play this intensely one must undertake rigorous training and acquire serious muscle control.
(7)It takes you places -"Behind the Yashmak" for example takes me to a particularly smelly bazaar reminding me funnily enough of John Fahey's "In a Persian Market" even though they are musically dissimilar.

This is a great CD for all the right reasons - great tunes, fantastic playing, spot on recording, wonderful atmosphere. I must mention the quasi ECM style artwork that makes three ordinary blokes look cool and intellectual (It must be the reflex camera, mine always makes me look dim and vacant.)

I recommend this CD to the house.
