Born to Love You
John P Bernat | Kingsport, TN USA | 05/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This, as one of the most original of the "firsts" produced by this combo, is an extraordinarily clean recording, as others have said here. But that's only a small part of what this is all about...

This group tried to maximize the range of a new recording medium with the compositions they created and performed. And perhaps the greatest of all examples of this is the track, "Born to Love You."

Digital recording, as a development beyond analog technology, meant extraordinary dynamic range. "Born to Love You" is one of the most startling recordings I've ever heard. It begins with a very quiet piano solo by Billy Barber, and gradually adds non-electronic instrumentation, most hauntingly a flute solo. This gradually builds to an incredible climax - and that word fits better than any other I can think of.

Where are they now? Nobody in the 1990s made more innovative storytelling music like these guys did..."
Lives up to its title!

"The CD trycicle is ground breaking indeed. I could not pass up the chance to share my thoughts on this CD. The same amazing digital trickery is here. The opening track is soft initally and , again as in the other CDS, spans the entire spectrum. The keyboards go extremely low to extremely high. I might add, this CD goes beyond the previous efforts. The dynamic range of loud to soft is used, again, beautifully. However, the melodies and phrasing of the tracks is quite enjoyable. I have recently revisited my Flim and the BBs collection and have been stuck on this CD again.
Don't get me wrong, their are some great digital recordings of fusion jazz. This is the gold standard for sound quality. There is no background noise, you can hear everything going on, and, most importantly-expect the unexpected."
