I found Deep Purple in 1974 at the Lewisham Odeon in London. It was a moment that changed my musical outlook. I saw Jon Lord with Tony Ashton doing the big band thing and when "Windows" came out I readily snapped it up. 30+ years later, it still confuses me.

When "Sarabande" came out, it fair knocked me over. This is a brilliantly realised interpretation of a baroque dance suite, from the genteel "Aria" to the almost dervish-like "Gigue."

For me, everything about this album is understated and that is its strength. It is simple; it is accessible and you don't have to know a darned thing about baroque. It jazzes, it swings, it rocks. It is as far removed from Purple as day is from night and I still listen to it with the same awe and wonder as I did then.

Jon Lord has said that it is his best work. Or he hasn't, depending on what you read. I also keep seeing the word "masterpiece" in other reviews. I can speak for neither of these but I will say that "Sarabande" is among the greatest albums I have. It is a work that reaches true heights; it is a work that endures and I think that that's because, freed from the distractions of Deep Purple, he got it right this time.

"Sarabande" is impeccable.

Oh, and for you music lovers, somewhere around 1977 I saw the "Sarabande" gig at the Albert Hall, complete with deliberate bum notes and Pete York sight-reading a drum solo, supporting David Bedford's "The Odyssey" which featured a very shy and reclusive musical genius by the name of Mike Oldfield on guitar.

Warning: this album contains haunting and addictive melodies you'll want to listen to repeatedly. Lord describes this as his most accessible album, although he doesn't think it his best. Many of his fans disagree. Sarabande is an intriguing mix of classical, jazz and rock music from the pen of a talented and sometimes under-rated composer. While not as experimental or as audacious as earlier works such as Concerto and Gemini Suite, it contains a wider snapshot of Lord's ecclectic musical tastes (gained, he says, from his father). Expressive and heartfelt keyboards complemented by fine guitar, bass and drum work. Well worth $US12, even for those of us labouring under faltering currencies.

After trying and mostly failing with the nevertheless entertaining "Concerto for Group & Orchestra" and "Gemini Suite", Lord finally succeeds in fusing rock band and orchestra. This is a very good album. The songs are well written and well played. (I dare say this album contains Andy Summers' finest guitar work.) In places it is reminiscent of early King Crimson, but with more melodic sense. It may also remind you of Rick Wakeman's similar efforts in the early 70's, but "Sarabande" is much more tasteful. Highly recommended for Deep Purple fans and for the curious. The open-minded will not be disappointed.

A strong piece of classically-infused rock with a great cast of players, this is an oft-overlooked work in the canon of popular music. Recorded soon after the first demise of Deep Purple, Jon Lord assembled a collection of players to record his new material to which he said, "the compositions were good, the musicians were outstanding and the conductor understood the music. Everything came together and I have to say, nothing I made before or since comes close to Sarabande."

With future Police guitarist Andy Summers, former Spencer Davis Group drummer Pete York and Eberhard Schoener handling the orchestrations, an epic collection of music followed. "Bouree" and the title track to me are the strongest pieces and absolutely none of it feels pompous or overwrought. You can even hear some of Dave Brubeck's "Take 5" in the opening notes of "Bouree" as well. This album is a stunning reminder of just how talented some people can be. R.I.P. Jon Lord.

Mr John Lord is 60 today, this album was recorded in Münich west Germany, when he did in 1975 along with the classical german conductor Mr. Eberhard Schoener. The musical style was influenced by the Baroque suite dance of the 16th century. The Inspiration of Johann Sebastian Bach Jon Lord had used in this suite orchestra, was amazing.
Jon Lord shows the music fans (but not only for deep purple fans) that his love for classical music convinced the fans of his strong piano or keyboard playing capability. The result is fantastic!

I first heard Sarabande when i picked it up upon original vinyl release, and it quickly became one of my favorite musical works of all time. Jon expertly intertwines Jazz, Rock and Classical,as the music of his piece flows from one section to the next. The orchestration is expertly handled and Mssr Lord's own playing is top notch. Add the guitar work of a pre-Police Andy Summers and this is one for repeated listening. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys finely crafted music.

I have had this album, yes the hard vynl thing, since 1981. Now we can get these great works of art right on our pcs. My favorite as always been Bouree. I think this is one of the neatest pieces ever written. I love the images it invokes. Strap those head phones on and be transported into the romance of dancers in veils and moonlit desert nights.
