5 stars This is a high caliber album jazz rock orientated ,performed by 3 aces in the most spectacular way possible!Just think at the fury and unleashed passion of NIACIN and you'll have this album!When we look at the line-up-it's almost scarry to have the mighty DAVE WECKL on the drums plus the bass phenomenon GARY WILLIS together and the wonderful Hammond organ lady KIYOMI OTAKA in the same place and time!The satisfaction is guaranteed and the expectations are more then fulfilled and accomplished!IOUT OF SIGHT is the fruit of the musical passion of this 3 super musicians gathered together for something trully historical!I repeat-when we listen this kind of album ,we are wondering ourselves how far the musical wizzardry can go and if there are some human boundaries in musicianship and virtuosity?The answer is so simple and direct-FUSION JAZZ ROCK MUSIC DOESN'T HAS ANY LIMITS!This album is an ear candy and the display of the fantastic musicianship of the 3 magicians here is mindblowing!From furious fusion and agressive tracks to midtempo ones and quiet moments-each musician has his interventions in the song,without interrupting the fluency of the tracks,the alchemy being so perfect-the developement of each song is brilliantly made-sometimes in a crescendo form,but always attractive and catchy!KIYOMI OTAKA is simply outstanding on Hammond organ and keyboards-she is a marvelous musician and the simple fact that so high caliber musicians like WECKL and WILLIS are sharing with her this album-proves that women can really play virtuoso music and fusion at the highest level possible!Miss Otaka is a very respected and accomplished musician in his home country Japan-she played with monster musiciand from his country-guitarist KOICHI YABORI or drums phenomenon KOZO SAGUNAMA from FRAGILE among others!The sound on SIGHT OF HAND is perfect and the cohesion of the musicians is magical!I think that this kind of album is a true musical event,a happy moment in the history of music and we have to thank to this out of this world musicians-that they offered us a piece of their tremendeous talent !All our respect and endless admiration for a superbe and perfect album!5 STARS without any hesitation!
