Review by Kazuhiro
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars It is not begin to being able to do a certain kind of style ..thinking.. somehow. We do not think that I am snugly settled mutually unite it etc. as the group. Of course, it is thought that the style derives always secondarily though the performance does a tune to which we have listened and a favorite tune. There was no target "Such one", and our present music was made as a result at the time of beginning. I try only to make use of an individual talent when composing.

Therefore, we do not think that the same performance repeats twice. In the thing of entering the best ten or not entering, the sonority might have been good by chance. The audience might be good and the hall be good. Therefore, if I understand when that is better, we add the section during the tune fast.

It is our ways, and the cooperative relationship is the one saying enough because there are only four people.

Other members also were always talking about zeal to music to the band as well as the remark of this Ralph Towner. It struck close to home to the band and the listener as a result on the boundary of this album. Therefore, how the death of Collin Walcott influenced the band and the listener for the band might be understood.

Distinguished services of Collin Walcott that introduces not only Sitar but even also the charm of Tabla to the field of Jazz Rock might be large. Many of original performance in David Darling and Codona that is. And, it is not only musical instruments of simple ethno and it should make a special mention of the point well versed in other musical instruments. Other members to say nothing of this can also find a similar point. And, the creativity was one of the charms of Oregon.

The album that had been announced through the label called Vanguard and Elektra always offered the music of fine quality for them as one shape and existence. And, the work in ECM assumed to be the most suitable for the sound of the band might have been an indeed new challenge for them. The content of the album that Oregon left ECM as a result will receive the impression in which the color of ECM is indeed reflected well.

"Oregon" that had been announced in 1983 offered the music of an extremely hard quality. On the other hand, this "Crossing" receives the impression with a little soft quality. And, this album has become the posthumous work of Collin Walcott for Oregon as a result. This album might be at a special position for the fan and the listener because the impression of the fact is strong. It is assumed that this album bears the part of a temporary compilation of the band in the opinion of the fan and is often recognized.

Ralph Towner uses Prophet 5 in this album as well as the album in 1983. The sound can be never emphasized and plays the role of the support of the tune. A mysterious color sense might be given by suitable for acoustic musical instruments. It is said that it likes Ralph Towner at this time and these musical instruments were used well.

The same thing will be able to be said for Paul McCandless and Glen Moore. The processing of a momentary agility and the space that produces the sound is overwhelming. The work of the band that leaves it for ECM has good quality that indeed reflects the age and a hard impression.

"Queen Of Sydney" is a tune by Paul McCandless. The melody by Prophet 5 makes the sense of serenity and the anacatesthesia. Melody of Oboe that plays mysterious music scale. Flavor with good percussion instrument in close relation to repeated melody. A little avant-garde impression is given. The construction of the line of a piano melody and Bass that goes out in the latter half of the tune makes an overwhelming, transparent feeling. The anacatesthesia of fine quality is exactly constructed.

"Pepe Linque" is a tune by Glen Moore. A transparent feeling extremely drifts in the tune. And, the melody with the race based on the rhythm of Swing is developed. The percussion instrument gives an original part that is as an impression because it uses Tabla. The melody of soprano Sax is glossy. And, the band is performing a light tune.

It is a tune where the flavor of the band was expressed well overall as for "Alpenbridge". Melody of arpeggio with tension with acoustic guitar. Their originality is shown according to the sound of Oboe and Sitar that it twines there. The melody is fantastic as much as possible.

"Travel By Day" is a tune by Collin Walcott. Melody of complete unison by Sitar and Bass. Each member uses well and performs the space. Especially, the melody that Sitar plays makes good use of harmony with Chord and the tension of Rock. The composition with the tension might be splendid.

A piano melody with expression of feelings sounds beautifully in "Kronach Waltz". Rhythm that is reminiscent of waltz rhythm and a few tangos. The feature the melody by Oboe and the press roll of Snare Drum.

"The Glide" starts the band while emitting the sound of Prophet 5 forward in union. Very fresh Jazz Rock is constructed. Each member is having them demonstrate characteristics of the sounds of acoustic musical instruments enough. The tune is very Jazz of fine quality. The composition in which each member's Solo is turned is splendid. The sound of Prophet 5 that supports the tune doesn't obstruct the tune. Part of Solo of piano and Oboe. And, the line of Bass that completely supports the tune. The tune is very high-quality.

"Amaryllis" is a tune with a transparent feeling very much. The melody of 12 bowstring guitar that Ralph Towner plays might be a performance for him. Obbligati of keyboard that gives composition in which tempo is not felt and grand impression. The tune will shift to Jazz Rock of fine quality and the element of ethnical before long. Various elements might mix and an advanced composition be a performance that they exactly do. A good flavor of the band is expressed well.

A wind instrument and a piano melody crosswire to "Looking-Glass Man". Twining of the line of the composition and Bass to make good use of the unison is complete. Especially, it is a composition in which twining of the melody concerning musical instruments is valued. The flow of this tune that excludes the rhythm is one of the charms of them.

"Crossing" gives a very a sound that each member plays pastoral impression. Beautiful piano melody. Part of guitar and wind instrument to get on the flow. And, twining of the drum that decides the impression of the tune increases degree of freedom. It might be ..composition of beauty very extremely and the quality.. finished.

It might be an album with the role of the compilation of the music character that the band cultivated exactly. And, the music of the quality after it is dedicated to Collin Walcott and the fan is here.

4 stars Surely an excellent album, the second one of the ECM era; no doubts, I think, about the technical skills of the musicians: Ralph Towner is, in my opinion, togheter with the brazilian Egberto Gismonti, one of the most impressive and refined acoustic guitar player; Paul McCandless is a really well d ...
