Master of Time
4 stars What we have here is basically an in-studio jam session between Andy Clark and Mick Hutchinson. It starts off with improvisations on a modal scale, which is my favorite track on the album. The song is just a big musical build up adding certain parts as it goes. On paper it seems that it would get boring at its longish length but it works well. It is a very upbeat song and It features some of Andy Clark's great saxophone work, and it's probably the best showcase for him on this album that is very dominated by Mick Hutchinson. The three songs making up the middle section of the album seem to blend together and aren't as interesting. Acapulco Gold is just guitar. It's very mellow and quite well done but is also boring, as are the other to songs to follow. Impromptu in E Minor shows off the psychedelic influences, but is my least favorite track. Textures in 3/4 features more saxophone but in this song it is quieter and more mellow. The album fortunately ends on a strong note with Improvisations on and Indian Scale. This is raga with psychedelic influences and done quite well. Fantastic song and shows how great Andy Clark Mick Hutchinson work together.

Improvisation's on a modal scale ***** Acapulco Gold **1/2 Impromptu in E Minor ** Textures in 3/4 *** Improvisations on an Indian Scale ***** Overall: ****

Master of Time | 4/5 |
