Exploding Star Orchestra / Rob Mazurek - We Are All From Somewhere Else We Are All From Somewhere Else
Jazz New - LP SW003 Short Wave
Sealed, Out Of Print 2008 Limited Edition (500 Copies) 2LP Gatefold Original. "Rob Mazurek's Big Band Free Jazz Opens Up "Sting Ray" With A Driving Ostinato. Above It, The Melodies Float Back And Forth, Carried In Large Part By Nicole Mitchell's Flute. After 4 Minutes, There's Another Section To Part 1 Which Is Best Described As 'Falling' Music. Mazurek Solos, And Then The Song Goes Into A Less-Driving Version Of The Original Ostinato. The Overall Effect Is Exhilarating, Unsettling, And New. Part 2 Is Similar To Part 1, And Then Part 3 Is Completely Different. Rob Mazurek Recorded Stingrays In A Brazilian Aquarium To Help Make Part 3. Part 3 Is The Most Free-Jazzy Part Of The Album, And I Suppose Your Appreciation For It Will Depend On Whether You Prefer Tone-Colors Or Melodies. Part 4 Is Similar To Part 3, But Is More Melodic, And Has A Nice, Long, Flute Solo To Boot. There's A Relatively Short Piano Interlude In "Black Sun", Then It's Off To "Cosmic Tones". Part 1 Of "Cosmic Tones" Is Almost Alarm-Clocky, Everyone's Playing Wake-Up Music. Part 2 And Part 3 Go Into Distinct Melodies, Neither Is Too Settling. Part 4 Is Brief, Loud Interlude. The Album Ends With Part 5, A Slow, Moody Piece With More Flute Soloing. The Overall Effect Is Futuristic Retro. This Would Be Great Soundtrack Music For A Spy Music Set In The 60's Where They're Using Sci-Fi Gadgets. It's Like Nothing You've Ever Heard, But It's Familiar" Anthony Cooper, Amazon.... more details
