A ball of string
David Watts | Houston, TX | 04/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hm, you gotta like avante garde or get lost on this one. It's like a ball of string - it looks messy, but you know that it's one continuous piece of string, and you can clearly see each end - all you gotta do is unravel it.Django Bates guests on this one, and he brings some good old british eccentricity with him. Each piece here is a fully relaized peice of improvisation that has an internal logic that it took me a time to figure out. The track lengths allow you plenty opf time to do it - track 1 is 21 minutes, track 2 17 minutes and track three 38 minutes. Three tacks, but no shortage of music then!This is wild - yet at time restrained music. Beauty in its unpredictability. Get it and play it many times, when the gates open, you get immersed in some wonderful interplay."
Another mind-boggling release from Berne and friends.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Marc Ducret opens this album with some slide guitar - the likes I've never heard before. After a minute and a half (or so) horns come in and then Bobby Previte happens. The entire band then begins playing a melody that seems to have no start and no end - in a time signature that seems to be form another planet. Oh, it's so lovely. Why spoil the CD with labels of Avant Gard, etc. It's new and fresh - that much is without doubt! Musicianship is stunning on all levels as are the compositions. A few brief moments of burst I'm not sure I get but on the whole a grand experience. Gentleman, I'm quite moved. One must respect this type of recording - as a musician especially. Enjoy! If you like this album get "Fractured Fairy Tales" - It may even be (dare I say it?) better?"
