Jan Garbarek Group - It's OK To Listen To The Gray Voice It's OK To Listen To The Gray Voice
Jazz Used - LP 1294 ECM
Mint, Unplayed 1985 Original, Gold Promo Sticker On Jacket. Features David Torn, Eberhard Weber And Michael DiPasqua. “Here Garbarek Is Approaching The Extremes Of His Style, Appearing Once Again With The Jan Garbarek Group. He Has His Usual Stark, Meditative Pieces, Interspersed With Some Cutting-Edge Work, Occasionally Spinning Just Enough Out Of Control To Be Exciting. And In Other Places He Ventures Headlong Into The Syrupy Fields Of Kenny G.-Land. All Pieces On This Record Are Titled After Quotes From Poems By Tomas Tranströmer, And Though The Actual Connection To These Poems Remains Tenuous At Best, They Do Add A Provocative Element To The Pieces Themselves, Which Beg For At Least Some Programmatic Interpretation. Excellent Bass Work By Eberhard Weber, Particularly On The More Avant-Garde Pieces (E.G., "The Crossing Place" And "One Day In March I Go Down To The Sea And Listen"). Multi-Instrumentalist David Torn Is Primarily Responsible For The More Aggressive Edge This Record Takes. His Guitar Lines Explode With Energy And Tension, Giving Garbarek A More Off-Center Field To Play In -- And Considering His Penchant For Excessive Restraint, This Is A Welcome Environment To Hear Him In. The Title Track Features Garbarek Squealing High On His Soprano Sax Over A Bed Of Spooky Chord Changes. All In All, The Album Finds Garbarek Doing Stronger Work Than He Had Done For Some Time And Certainly Stronger Than Listeners Would Hear From Him For Many Years To Come.” Mark Allender, AMG.... more details
