CD Reviews

Essential CD for Jan Hammer fans
Michael Kydonieus | San Francisco, CA United States | 11/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First of all, let me caution any Elvin fans--this is not REALLY an Elvin Jones album. Half of the tunes are written by Hammer and half of them are written by Gene Perla, the bassist. And pretty much all the solos are taken by Hammer. The style is not jazz, but rather jazz fusion. Not the ridiculous variety that consists of everybody playing as fast and as loud as possible, but rather thoughtful, understated and sophisticated. That said, the tunes are gorgeous, the solos are lovely, and the rhythm section rocks. The sound of the recording is beautiful too. Basically, the album is flawless. If you care at all about Jan Hammer's playing in the jazz style, you MUST own this album. If you would like to read more reviews like this, check out
Great Fusion!

"A great Fusion Cd with the special Elvin Jones touch, for sure. Great power by the man himself and excellent playing by Jan Hammer too. The tunes are high energy and feature great laid back Fusion. A must have for all Elvin Jones and Jan Hammer fans!"
Excellent Jazz-Rock Fusion

"Jazz-Rock with a muscular edge, featuring Jan Hammer on keyboards and synthesizer soloing and as the composer of several excellent tunes. Jan Hammer fans will certainly want to add this surprise gem to their collection."
