Music for head, hands, and feet.
Karl W. Nehring | Ostrander, OH USA | 07/05/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I am afraid that if I write that this music is difficult to describe, readers will assume that this music is difficult to listen to; however, nothing could be further from the truth, as this is music that is enticing and seductive--but difficult to describe, because it encompasses both chamber music and jazz, among other things, while sounding constantly inventive and surprising. Composer Jon Balke mans the keyboards, and the instruments used by the Magnetic North Orchestra include trumpets, saxophones, violin, viola, cello, bass, percussion, and drums. Particularly seductive about this music is its interweaving of dance rhythms from throughout the world into its musical fabric, plus its imaginative use of percussion. Truly this is music for head, hands, and feet, recorded so well that it is also truly a treat for the ears."
