Strong, melancholy and very pretty.
Paul Carr | Silver Spring, MD United States | 07/10/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It would be easy to dismiss this album as newage mush, but it's far from that. Yes, the melodies are beautiful, but you know, that's OK with me. Throughout the hsitory of music, the great masters have been able to write a pretty tune when the moment called for it. Sometimes music wants to dress up a bit and be lovely, and she chose Garbarek, Gismonti and Haden as her vehicles on this occasion. These are three world class players who make music with integrity, depth and passion. There's good chemistry between the steely Norwegian saxophone master Garbarek, the earthy tones of American bassist Haden, and the emotionally charged, nuanced imagination of Brazilian guitar virtuoso Gismonti. This is not the most challenging work of any of these three musicians, but neither is it mindless ear candy. Relax and enjoy."
As per usual custom...... malinchonic
