A Gem From Chicago

"Jim Baker is an excellent pianist and an amazing synth player who plays almost nightly in the windy city. This is, from what I know at least, his first proper solo album and it's a doozy. His pianism takes wonderfully melodic and kotty lines and puts them through the prism of european art music, never loosing sight of his original melodic invention. His synth playing is the deal. I think he is truly one of the two greatest players (along with Thomas Lehn) of the synth right now. He gets some amazing sounds and textures out of his ARP, but more importantly puts them in the context of a real composition. Hopefully Delmark will put out some more material, and if you are in Chicago you can catch this unheralded act nightly for, I hate to say, peanuts."
