CD Reviews

This is a definitive sampler of Checkfield's best! | Rowland Heights, Califonia, USA | 09/02/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For anyone who is not familiar with Checkfield's music, this is the one CD that you should get. In fact, it's the only one that you CAN get, because all their earlier work is out of print.It's incredible, really, to think that the original CDs of this group are unavailable. Checkfield conistently has created some of the most innovative music, all of it flawlessly performed and exquisitely produced.If you're not a musician, you'll love the fact that Checkfield's music is somewhat intuitive?it flows naturally. But beware - the melodies will haunt you. You'll find that this music can easily become a constant companion, whether you use it for background while working, or for direct and intent listening.If you are a musician, prepare for a university education in some of the most brilliantly constructed pieces that you will ever hear. These guys are masters of the art. I've heard these tunes dozens of times, and I still find things I've never really HEARD before.For those who know Checkfield's music, Reflections On A Decade provides a handy format for accessing some of the group's best work without using a multi-disc CD changer. Actually, I was happy just to be able to buy ANY Checkfield music after their long hiatus, but there are new things here too.The bottom line? Whether you're already a Checkfield fan or you're looking to discover a great new musical experience, this CD is an extraordinary value!"
Mr. Archer - can you bring the 4 CD's back into print? | New York, New York | 01/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All a winner. Peaceful, relaxing, invigorating. I hope that American Grammophone or Gallery will reissue the original 4 cd's, plus Spirit from '83."
Like a spring breeze | 02/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the freshest, cleanest "albums" I've ever heard. I've been a huge fan of Checkfield ever since I first heard them about a decade ago. Their sound is like the first cool, warm breeze of spring coming through the window, blowing the curtain of winter straight out of your mind. Mr. Archer and Mr. Satterfield are indisputably gifted; absolutely five stars . . ."
