Synopsis

Album Description
Music for the Millennium, his second Postcards recording, features Ralph Simon on soprano saxophone and breath-controlled synthesizers, engaging in riveting duets, trios, quartets, and larger ensembles with a magic club of world-class improvisers. Paul Bley, Gary Peacock, Julian Priester, Bruce Ditmas, and others bring their own unique vocabulary of genius to a set of Simon's original compositions that explores his extensive background in jazz, contemporary classical, and free improvisation with an eye towards effecting a remarriage of acoustic and electric music that might point out some directions in the fourth dimension of future jazz -- on into the next millennium. Welcome to the Magic Club!

I'm amazed no one's heard this yet...

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Definitely where cool's going to be at, in the next cent. on the whole a very tight, very cerebral album with occasional bursts of total joy. 'downhill slalom''s my favourite - it's only once a year you get to hear drumming like that."
