4 stars A treasure.

After having this splendid album for several months thanks to the kind recommendations of our very own Avestin, my desire to explore jazz fusion has certainly increased. Upon listening there is little to distinguish this album as being live, given the wonderful production and impeccable playing, an incredibly well done live album. Much of this acts as an improv jam session, but it works so well and many of the tracks come with wonderful melodies from the variety of instruments on display here.

The drums here are most impressive to me, powerful yet not overbearing, providing many subtle textures that help bring the quality of the other instruments out. Triphrons is a personal favorite here, with a riff in the middle that I am most keen to, reminding me of a mixture of VDGG/zeuhl at around 7:30 in which continues to stun me. As a whole, the music is very upbeat, energetic, and acts as a work of musical zeal and freedom. Although it may be limited in terms of scope, concept, etc., by and large there is much here to gain from this experience not only as a listener but as a musician as well.
