5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasing and rewarding overview February 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a pleasing and rewarding overview of a rich and varied music career that incorporates free jazz stylings, avant-garde orchestrations, accompanied spoken-word pieces and most things in between. A rich stew like that could so easily have become an unlistenable stodge but clever track sequencing and the overall intelligence of the music and the excellence of the musicians concerned makes it instead an exhilerating experience. Jack Bruce and Robert Wyatt are featured to great effect, alongside some formidable names indeed: The Balanescu Quartet; Marianne Faithful; Don Preston; Don Cherry; Larry Coryell; Terje Rypdal; Chris Spedding; Steve Swallow; Tony Williams; Nick Mason and The Jazz Composer's Orchestra et al. This is music that rewards repeated listens. As the disc's cover notes say: "If the range of his work is its hallmark, his tone, as player and writer, is unmistakably his own". The range is there, the tone is there, the achievements are there - now all that is needed are ears open enough to receive it all. Dive in.
