Big Map Idea finds Steve Tibbetts in more subdued musical terrain. This is a mature album filled with hauntingly, atmospheric, slow hypnotic dreamy depth and texture. Fans of his more frenzied electric ventures might be disappointed. This is a contemplative acoustic tour that grows on the listener over time. Tibbetts is the master of "pictures made of sound" This is quintessential spiritual travel music!

Steve Tibbetts music can alter consciousness. He is a master of mood. Great stuff to listen to when traveling!! "Big Map Idea" is a quiet reflective album like his previous "Northern Song", but with more instruments and texture. an emotional, spiritual album, just as powerful as doing a zen seshinn. An audio analouge of the liquid bliss of Nirvana. Buy this album, you'll end up telling everyone about Steve Tibbetts!

Is this still in print? It should be!!!! All Steve's ECM lps have a similarity in style and production but the music is beautiful. This lp is loosely world music, but much more than that label often implies. It is acoustic in nature, but processed, it is layered excellently arranged and passionately played.

This one's for acoustic type folk music fans. Nature music for sure. Starts off with Black Mountain Side which is a... LED ZEPPLIN song, but it's totally cool. John Fahey fans might go for this. I own several of his recordings and this one has grown on me and stands alone. Light synths and subdued just right percussion. Perfect for drives in the country.

I'm a huge fan of Steve who is always fearless. He's the king of high energy electric Jazz fusion world music without the cliché factor. In fact there are never clichés in his music. He's not afraid of alienating his audience by trying out new ideas which you have to admire. Never panders, always exploring and growing.

All the pro guitar players know who he is and admire him, but not much of the public. If he got the kind of feedback he deserves he'd have hundreds of reviews. It will grow on you if you give it time. Strong 5 stars.

Heard this on WXPN (University of Pennsylvania) in the car. I had to look up their playlist and find the artist when i got home. This is perfect for playing while drawing or painting in studio. I get tired of listening to Bach and I'm on the lookout for good studio music.
