5 stars Third chapter of the side project Codona, this album is a pure beauty. If you desire to relax and spend a fairy musical adventure don't go elsewhere, this album has all the ingredients to convince you. What I highly appreciate in this "world" jazz trio is the authenticity, there's nothing superficial or new age here, each composition submits a dense, mystical "voyage" to the listener. The trumpet of Don Cherry draws marvellous melodies, formidably accompanied by a wide range of "exotic" percussions from everywhere. The Sitar of Collin Walcott stays discreet but it provides subtle meditative soundscapes (in the mysterious 'travel by night'). "He da ba doom" is made of repetitive percussions, the psych and physical sensations delivered is near to a state of trance. "Lullaby" is a calm "raga" like song. "Inner organs" is a fascinating "atmospheric" jazzy tune with trumpet and a deep organic, linear sound. One of my absolute favourites from the classic ECM catalogue...Codona 3 is a work of incredible magic, a perfect alchemy between pluri-ethnical influences.
