My first Wichi=Tai-To grabbed me from the dashboard of my car in the middle of the night as I drove through a radio-free-zone in Connecticut. I had come in range of some little college radio station and when it started to fade before that tune, whatever it was, ended, I pulled over and listened all the way to the end. This was in the early Eighties and the version I heard was the original, by the Jim Pepper Band (although it took me a long time in those pre-Google days to find it out.) Wichi-Tai-To is based on a vaguely remembered shamanic song, maybe even inauthentic, from an old man in Pepper's family (as I remember), giving way to Pepper's sax, which somehow was entirely appropriate to the tune. The Jim Pepper Band version is, as far as I can tell, out of print (meaning MP3) but there are a half-dozen more recent interpretations. Garbarek's is one of the most subtle and intellectually complex - especially if the original WTT is stored somewhere in your aural cortex. Garbarek deconstructs the original, itself a brilliant deconstruction, and puts it all back together as something new and beautiful.
