On the hip with most of Garbarek's recordings, this one is airy and spacy -- belting out screaming sax lines over a drony sea of nothing. The word to describe this record is passionate. This is not background music like many of his other recordings tend toward. Fans of his playing on Paul Giger's Alpstein will appreciate this one. The five pieces here -- serially titled -- tend to blend together, giving the impression of one long song.
