A very different sort of offering from the band that are truly the originators of world music, "At Peace" was only recently released on CD. Previously, it had been available only on cassette, and even then it was apparently quite a difficult item to locate. This album finds Tony Duhig and John Field exploring the ambient side of their craft. There are only 3 tracks on this 44-minute long release, and all 3 are very soothingly meditative and melodic. Those familiar with Jade Warrior's music may wonder why there are no sudden bursts of Hendrix-like guitar, unexpected crashes of gongs, or other abrupt shifts in dynamics, but for this work the members by their own admission attempted to write music by "just looking out of the window" onto the English countryside. Great stuff to go to sleep or wake up to, for meditation, and for just putting yourself in a very relaxed mood after a long hard day at work.
Fans of Jade Warrior and their innovative "world sounds" may find this a let-down, but taken for what it is - essentially an ambient release in the 1970's Brian Eno vein, and perhaps slightly reminiscent of Steve Roach's "Quiet Music" series - it can be a highly satisfying experience.
Sadly, this 1989 album was to be the last that featured guitarist and founding member Tony Duhig, who suffered a fatal heart attack on November 11, 1990. I like to think that Mr. Duhig is somewhere out there "at peace" whenever I listen to this.

I beg to differ with some of the negativity this release has received. I agree with almost all JW fans their early 1970s material was groundbreaking to the point of a stunned hippie turned disco loving public falling off their rockers. Early JW was progressive and not in pompous sense of other UK acts like ELP, Yes(both known for the over the top dynamics/showmanship angst) etc but in the sense Jon Fielding and Tony Duhig where taking all sorts of influences and injecting those styles i.e. jazz, oriental scales, rock, folk and cooking up an aural stew of delicious imagery unlike anything of that era.
Now back to At Peace. Its a very laid back affair with just the two main members and no orchestra or guest musicians(which where quite common to thier earlier recordings) to back them. It feels semi improvised and with a sense of easement and soft focus if you will towards the mindset of relaxation and decompression from the concrete jungle. This is again another side of their creativity and restrains on the drums and percussion so prevalent in their early musical chapters. Its NOT American new age with sappy David Lanz/Yanni piano noodles but more pastoral like the rolling English countryside with hints of melody and nice keyboard & guitar embellishments. Kudo's for these guys taking a risk making this sort of zen like music regardless of the stone hurling progsters. Someone should re-release this gem as it has long been out of print!

Jade Warrior released this recording in 1989. Being a devote fan, I bought it in CD format, which was still not the norm in '89. I was extremely dissappointed. All the fire and peaceful passion is missing from this recording. I just found out that it is the last recording Tony Duhig was involved with at all. He passed away in 1990 from what I understand.
Just be aware of two things: Tony does play on this, but not that much and this recording is geared for the ambient audience. It is not typical even of what John is still capable of. Buy it because it is the last known recording that Tony played on.
