4 stars If you want to hear how sounds mainstream jazz-rock fusion in the end of the first decade of new century, just listen this album. Hiromi Uehara is growing melting jazz and rock with every new album, and this one is evidence.

Very important is presence of guitarist David Fiuczynski on this album. Classically trained, with her roots in jazz, Hiromi found excellent partner for her piano sound. Very balanced mix of keyboards (or sometimes piano) and rock-edged guitar gave fresh and very pleasant feel to the music on this album.

In fact, deeply based on great fusion school of 70-s ( Chick Corea, first of all), this music is just modern reincarnation of fusion golden age. It's a very rare today successful mix of tradition and modern sound.

Being complex structurally and technically, this album is MELODIC , and it means that is easy accessible. As I mentioned above, the music there is a modern classic of jazz fusion, so don't expect to find there experimentation. But it is real gem for lovers of classic fusion, and possibly one of the greatest work of quality mainstream fusion of last decade.
