MUSIC REVIEW BY Adam Greenburg, All Music Guide

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

An interesting collaboration between painting and music modeling itself loosely upon the work of Mussorgsky. Accompanying this set of fine modern jazz as performed by quartets on both sides of the Atlantic are a series of paintings by Patrick Haskett with a relatively contemporary style (Norman Rockwell with some impressionism, and something more that music critics shouldn't attempt to describe). The jazz is exceptional, using a guitar as a lead in an effective manner, with the band accompanying more than washing out the instrument (as is regrettably often the case in guitar-based recordings). Perhaps more interesting on the jazz end is the ability to see parallels between European jazz and American jazz, which don't seem all that different in this setting.
