Editorial Reviews

This classic album is now remastered, repackaged and re-released. Recorded on a 1995 tour of Europe, it has captured a lot of attention since its release in 1996. At the start, it's just a simple bass figure: two notes repeated slowly. But over the next hour, the mood builds and surges, moving through multiple permutations in the hands of three master instrumentalists. Jonas Hellborg's bass notes are clear, articulate and distinctively original. Guitarist Shawn Lane moves easily from sensitive chording to melodic lines expressed in a vibrant, singing tone. Jeff Sipe's drumming is melodic, his use of dynamics is intelligent and unexpected.

Well actually, it IS like ONE other album - this is the remastered Bardo Records version of the original 1996 Day Eight Records cd with Mao Tse-tung's picture hanging behind the three group members. Anyway, here you have three virtuosos so confident in their ability and vision that they have the canasters to put out a cd with just two long (32-minutes and 27-minutes) improvised jams done in a live setting. And it all works beautifully. The album art is stark, the booklet notes are practically nonexistent, yet the title is this precocious and cerebral "Temporal Analogues of Paradise" which focuses the listener's attention on the MUSIC, and nothing else. For good reason. Drummer Jeff Sipe (aka Apt. Q-258) has an eclectic background, with influences from Carl Palmer to the great jazz masters, and he's magnificent in this type of setting. Bass player Jonas Hellborg (arguably the most famous of the trio) has a great arsenal of styles and sounds, venturing from soft melodic to bop to growling fury - he's quite a talent. Together, they form a solid and knowing rhythm section that's not shy about taking their turns in the soloing spotlight. After those two, one might be tempted to slight Shawn Lane as just "icing on the cake". But the former Black Oak Arkansas guitar wunderkind from Memphis takes what is already GREAT to...well, EXCEPTIONAL. I'd love to have a video of him playing, as he tended to sound like two (or even three!) guitarists at once in places. He could fly as fast as a neo-classical metal shredder, or alternately add beautiful background colors to the other soloists. For many of us, it was the unique sound and talent of the late Shawn Lane that originally drew us to this cd.Read more ›

As a performing improvising musician, I can tell you that the thing that drives me (and most other improvising musicians) is the magic that happens when everything comes together, when the music is taken out of your hands and you are simply the vehicle for some higher, faster, purer purpose. The communication between musicians becomes more than communication: it becomes one mind with many hands. The notes become inevitable; you can't play a wrong note or make a misstep, and things happen so fast it seems instantaneous. It's as though the entire room and all its occupants lift off the ground. Those nights happen rarely, but the ecstasy is so potent that you do anything to chase it, willing to sacrifice everything just to experience it again for a few seconds. This CD captures one of those nights when the magic went on for an hour, played by three of the most capable musicians around.

The interplay is extraordinary, and the solos simply fly. Shawn Lane is on fire here, speaking in tongues, building and building to a climax and then releasing into a blissful meditation. Jonas Hellborg's solos are both powerful and lyrical, without mimicking Jaco Pastorious, as most bass players do these days when they try to play lyrically. And Jeff Sipe does his best playing on any recording here. His solo is a masterpiece of technique, tone, dynamics, musicality, and structure (also perhaps the best recording of drums every captured). And he does it without resorting to pyrotechnics, bombast, or flash. It should be required listening for every drummer.

Hellborg needs no introduction. This is the man that actually plays Herbie Hancock solos(!) on the bass. But one can say that it is not his perfect techique that makes the point, merely it is his total control of the sound. That's his conception of virtuosity. On the other hand there's Shawn Lane. Unpredictable as usual, the fact that impresses me more is his dedication to the group. Yes, he really plays for the whole. The two tracks are harmonically very simple built upon 4th intervals. A magical gift for all the music lovers.

While both movements are excellent, the second movement, an essentially open improv, is brilliant. All three players mesh well and produce melodic, harmonic, tonal, and rhythmic excellence. There aren't many 27 minute compositions that I immediately restart when I get to the conclusion. In a very different way, the music is reminiscent of the early '70's recordings of Miles Davis, such as "Bitches Brew", "On The Corner", "Big Fun", and "Get Up With It".
