Condition: Used: Very Good
Comment: Disc in excellent condition, but visible shelf wear on cardboard case. Ships directly from AMAZON's warehouse and qualifies for Amazon Prime and Super Saver Shipping, along with all of Amazon's guarantees! A well-cared-for CD that has been listened to, but remains in great condition and plays perfectly. The jewel case may show limited signs of wear, as may the cover art, liner notes, and inclusions.

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Saxophonist Peter Epstein's band, Idee Fixe, has been an act of love (and obsession) since 1997. Along with guitarist Andy Barbera, Sam Minaie on bass, and Matt Mayhall on drums, the group is joined on their debut recording by Saxophonist Gavin Templeton & Brian Walsh on bass clarinet, as they create fully realized, spontaneously-composed music with neither discussion or forethought, guiding listeners to some rarely visited, but truly inspired and beautiful places.


Epstein is making some pretty amazing statements rooted in world music and the avant-garde, but stretching even those parameters to create a contemporary modern sound all his own. --All Music Guide
