3 stars The second release by Kostarev since his debut as an artist in 1978 really is something else.

In reverse chronological order we're presented with 10 examples of his music; where spacey compositions are performed in avant-garde manner, influences from jazz and classical music mixed with slight folk leanings and rock in a witches brew of offbeat rhythms and patterns.

The last two tunes on this album is something completely different, one short track with an extreme form of improvisational jazz, followed by an almost 14 minutes long improvisational piece mixing structured and melodic jazz improvisation with wild and untamed free-form segments.

Skilled peformance, and one to seek out by fans of avant-garde and similar types of highly experimental music.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
