4 stars The news of the re-formation of ElektricBand ran exactly about all over the world in 2001. He had been doing live with JazzClub"BlueNote" for three weeks at this time. Important Trio "Acoustic Trio" has been revived in the history of his music in this December, 2001. However, he saw off the revival of "ElektricBand". Live of this has been exactly done for three weeks as commemoration of the 60th birthday about him. And, the pattern of live of this was reproduced in detail as CD and DVD and put on the market. It gathered by the musician, the friend, and the companion who had the mind of respect to him and made his history more perfect.

And, ElektricBand appears in front of us exceeding the time of nine years in 2002 the next year. Album "Paint The World" that had been announced in 1993 was not a translation of having been performed by an original member. And, the time of 14 years has passed even as for this work since the last album "Beneath The Mask" that an original member had done was announced.

Various guests were participating in their albums. And, it is thought that the organization of a band today is a strong member whom the fan admits. Therefore, this album is made in the highest line that the fan admits.

Chick can be discovered to be influenced from novel "To The Stars" on L, Ron, and Hubbard when this album is made and to begin making the album. He often took the element of SF to music. He is finishing writing the tune based on this novel. And, his having created it appears in the album "Captain Jocelyn-The Pianist". Chick finishes up the album imagining space from the model.

Chick acts by devising the method of the ability of the performance of the band and transmitting my image and the ensemble well. This happens when the musician who trusts him unites with the power of the creation of Chick. And, his performance was always so. He ..this fact.. has gone before, and it appears and he plays the melody by the unique method the group (acoustic band and RTF) that came. This work is a concept very album. I want to dare to refrain from the explanation of the tune if the listener wants to feel his idea. We will recommend listening from "Check Blast" they, ensembles, impressive to the last tune at once continuously.
