Editorial Reviews

2013 release from the Avant-Garde/Ambient composer. Jane 1-11 is at least among Harold's very best work and may be his all-time best. Start to finish, this is Harold at his most inspired and most tapped in to his unique gift. There is no other Harold Budd record on which he so strongly expresses his singular avant sensibility.

He has his own unique musical vision that surpasses technique.
Phasedin
Even for those who might be wary of ambient, this latest album is highly recommended!

In my own opinion probably the best Harold Budd album since Avalon Sutra.

I've been listening to Harold Budd since I first heard Brian Eno and Harold Budd's collaboration "The Pearl 20 years ago through a friend of mine. With Jane 1-11 I own 12 of his works. I've heard them all. In the last few years he's released allot of collb work with not only Robin Guthrie but 3 with Clive Right. All guitar and keys works. Then came " Bandits of Stature" and "The Mist". Bandits of Stature being very Minimal and sound like remnants from "Avalon Sutra",..and The Mist another all piano work..which let's be honest..we've all heard if your a Budd fan. True..I bought Candylion and Song for lost Blossoms (two of the 3 Clive Right guitar collabs).. I got rid of them..and true I bought Bandits of Stature and kept that one. But overall I've been keeping track and wanting more. Well..Jane 1-11 did it. In my own opinion probably the best Harold Budd album since Avalon Sutra. I won't try and make a comparison against any other albums. But this album is without doubt his most diverse work in a long time. Lot's of synth like the early days, but still utilizing a great many other instruments to create a more complete and amazing work. It's just a great record. I'm glad after many years of what I would call making good music depending on your opinion, but making allot of the same sounding and styled good music..he finally goes back and mixes it up a bit more while still just being the Budd.
If yoru a Harold Budd fan you gotta get this one. Worth the wait.

Harold Budd is an American avant-garde, experimental, and ambient composer who had his first release in 1978 (which, my dear reader, was most likely before you were even born). He is most notably known for his works produced by and with Brian Eno, especially the album titled Ambient 2: The Plateaux Of Mirror (Polydor, 1980), but Budd always felt being "kidnapped" into the ambient category applied for the use of his sustained and atmospheric piano playing, a technique he termed "soft pedal". Nevertheless, at a young and ripe age of 77, Budd continues to compose and record music, with most recent releases appearing on the San Diego based Darla Records. And for that, we're thankful!

On the eleven sequentially titled pieces, Jane 1-11, we find minimal compositions of cozy, hushed and serene keys, droning pads, and sparse droplets of sound. The music flows, swells and ebbs through the plateaus and valleys of silence. The plucked strings, struck marimbas and various synthetic instruments often wonder around the main theme, which is less aimless and more contemplating in nature. There is plenty of reverb, but it is administered with care, like a thin layer of ointment on a slow healing wound. The rest is explored through ongoing resonance, harmony and meticulous stereo field placement. And although he seems to reject the prescribed categorization of styles, with most pieces [especially the gorgeous Jane 8], Budd seems to define what was once proclaimed by the ambient movement itself: music that is as ignorable as it is interesting.

"It's simple. I broke out and broke back to my earlier days: A triangle of risk, improvisation and joy -- as I say, very simple. My rules to myself were: No plan, no notes, no ideas, no microphones; except for Jane 1 I stuck to it.

Harold Budd, the godfather of ambient music, keeps producing music better with each passing year. Since his proposed retirement a few years ago he has become more prolific than ever. Whether the efforts are collaborations with Robin Guthrie or Clive Wright or solo efforts such as this one, Budd keeps the cellar filled with an endless array of creativity. You'll love this CD! It harkens back to classics with Budd and Eno in their early years, and is filled with nuances that come with this genre of music with experience.

...On this new release Harold presents more great music for that late afternoon/early evening melancholy mood. Perfect compositions for reflection after a day's doings. Will put the listener in a nice, relaxed mood. A perfect companion piece to "In The Mist". A fantastic work of art!!! A+++!

I listened to a few tracks with the videos on youtube. As always Harold Budd delivers beautiful music, even more enhanced by the minimalist videos. If you like piano accompanied by lush electronic sounds (aka Brian Eno & Harold Budd) you will like this music.

I personally believe Harold Budd is a musical genius.
He has his own unique musical vision that surpasses technique. Something rare and something I always seem to notice is a trait all of my favorite musicians have. A vision of their own.
I put him in a category along with people like Terry Riley, Eberhard Weber, Ralph Towner, Toru Takemitsu, and others .
In my book he can do little wrong-and i've been following and buying his music since "Pavillion Of Dreams' came out in the late 1970's.
Recently he has done a ton of collaborative albums (mostly with guitarists), but his solo works have focused for quite some time now largely on acoustic piano. His piano playing is as lovely as his compositions but personally i've been waiting for a solo disc of his where he gets back into weaving his electronic textures into some new music-and that is this disc.
Although I can't really compare it with his earlier well-known solo electronic classics like "Lovely Thunder" and "The White Arcades", well, it IS about 30 years after those late 1980's recordings.
The new edition of "Jane" includes a DVD of the 55 minute album accompanied by scenic videos shot by Jane Maru. Some of these seem to be filmed (possibly) around Budd's home area in the California desert. Just scenic stuff, some of it very well done, but pretty much exactly what you would expect from a video that accompanies Budd's music.
There are no additional scenes or interviews or anything else on the DVD.
