Slower, less frenetic than some of the earlier albums, but more atmospheric - and with the same great with the same great polyrhythms and grooves.

They are beautiful, mellow tracks, superbly played and very well recorded.

I have been really captivated by NBR's very distinctive mix of coolheaded Swiss precision and control, improvisatory flair and volcanic drive. The best tracks on their previous two ECM discs - 'Holon' and 'Stoa' - are those where the band really gets into the groove, spinning long, rhythmically flexible meandering lines (à la Steve Reich), that teasingly gyrate around an elusive climax. As in Reich the music is never static. There is constant movement, instrumental details constantly flashing up, minute variations traversing the musical texture. The real star of the band for me is drummer Kaspar Rast who in a spectacular way embodies that combination of awesome precision, remarkable self-restraint and spine-tingling rhythmic drive.

If I have a gripe about Holon and Stoa it is that I feel there is more potential that consistently remains underexploited. Tracks (all of which are titled as abstract 'Modules') last typically less than 10 minutes, never more than 15 minutes. This is the kind of music, it seems, that would benefit from longer tracks allowing the band to explore the material in more diversified ways, building in more and longer waves of rhythmic contraction and expansion. So I was disappointed to see that Modules on the present recording are even shorter, all between 7 and 9 minutes.

Llyria a different record from the previous two ECM productions in the sense that it is more lyrical (as the title maybe suggests; on the other hand it also may refer to a recently discovered luminescent underwater creature). They are beautiful, mellow tracks, superbly played and very well recorded. A marvelous disc to chill out. But it's not quite why I'm listening to a Bärtsch gig.

Nik Bärtsch's ensemble Ronin had previously issued their album Holon, which held me in its grip. This captivating music continues in the new album, Llyria. The stark European free jazz [this is from ECM after all] is composed to a large extent but, when performed, the musicians interact as cells in an organism to stretch and contract the phrases, to pull the listener in as each modal exploration unfolds. Saxophone or clarinet, drums and percussion, piano, and bass guitar weave a web of pulsing rhythm, timbre, and repeating lyrical phrases. Avant-garde, yes, but the music is fully accessible to the uninitiated ear. These are musical statements, meditatively spiritual in effect. Ronin are sorcerers. There is a quality of Turkish Dervish music in its elegant flow. Llyria is a significant album.

Llyria , third cd from ECM / Nich Bartsch's Ronin , penetrate my brain more and more after every listening , like a worm . The construction of music is wondeful with polyrithmic figures , ostinatos and deep groove . I strongly suggest it to everyone who loves Jazz and music in general . There is an idea behind this music , discover it .

The 3rd album by the group Nik Bartsch's Ronin with their style of "zen-funk-jazz" sees the group shifting slightly towards more jazzy and softer sounds, still keeping their dynamic innovative tempo.

The music is hard to define, having the instruments and qualities of jazz (all in the superior hallmark production values of an ECM album) but with the fast repetitive structures common in electronic music.

There's a philosophy behind the music, one you can read all about at the artists' website. But who cares, when the music is so exciting, meditative and unique, all at the same time?

My only concern is being this the third album, the group might start treading the same ground. The problem with minimalism, is that... well, its minimalistic. In the sense that there's not much room for growth- artistic and stylistic growth. they'll need to start reinventing themselves for the next album.

Still, Nik Bartsch's Ronin's journey is one you should come along with.
