Where Western Avant-Garde Percussion Wishes It Could Go

(5 out of 5 stars)
"The traditional and original percussion music on this CD go places where western avant-garde percussion music has often tried for but rarely succeeded in reaching. Using percussion neither as a repetative dance rhythm nor as a way to escape the confines of both the tonal and 12-tone system, the music on this CD is both narrative and highly visual (the titles are often specific visual scenes that the music represents). This is done in sophisticated but accessible music that is friendly to the ear but also engaging to the mind. Some highlights includes "A Tiger Sharpens it Teeth" and "Squabbling Ducks". This has been an inspirational CD for me that finds its way into my player over and over again."
