3 stars If you purchase an Eartworks CD expecting to hear hard fusion, the way Bruford played in his earlier band, "Bruford" you are in for a big disappointment. If you kept up with Mr. Bruford's career, and new that he was interested in playing a more straight ahead style of jazz, you will be delighted.

That is not to say that there aren't moments here to please a prog fan. The songs "Pigalle" has a very intriguing bit of play in it's time signatures, seeming to constantly vary where the one beat is, with Brufoed himseld setting the tone with his complex tonal drum synth pads. And "Nerve", with it's syncopation, is reminiscent to me of the jazzier works of Soft Machine.

The remainder of the album is filled with very nicely played bebop, with some electric passages mixed in. Not a bad album, but by no means essential.

Evolver | 3/5 |
