2 stars Dig? Not so much.

This is a competent jazz album, but not very special, and certainly not very much progressive qualities to it. Like on all of Bruford's Earthworks albums, The disk features many songs where the amazing drummer not only plays the rhythms on his drums, but he also sets up the entire mood with his tuned electronic pads. Unfortunately, in all but a few sections, the rhythms and moods he lays down are not very compelling, leaving much of the disk to sound like background music.

The good tracks here are "Dancing On Frith Street", a song that benefits from constantly changing styles, and the upbeat "Libreville".

This is for light electric jazz lovers, not prog fans.
