(4 out of 5 stars)

"Like that better known violinist, Taro Hakase is an accomplished and experimental player. Unlike V.M. though, who seems to be concentrating on classical, Taro has focused on modern interpretive violin pieces. Some of the covers he does here were not even original Violin pieces - 'Oye como va' for instance. This is not trance music or acid jazz but simply a nice blend of sounds. There is a certain Latin and Middle East feel and atmosphere to the album. The vocals (not his), where used, are lovely but the enjoyment is in the instrumental arrangements which overlay or highlight his splendid electric violin. The pieces I liked best were 'Begin the Beguine' 'Sunrise' which actually gives me the feel of the end of a lazy day and should be called Sunset, and 'Oye Como va'"
