Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars This is the companion album to the previous one called "Movies" released 2 years earlier in 1978. In fact I have them both on 1 cd re-issued by ECM Records. Also "Movies" ended with the song "Movie Eight" and this one starts with "Movie Nine". On paper it would seem that "Movies" would be the better album with Tony Williams on drums and Larry Coryell on guitar, but man I think I like this one a little more. Both are great ! Gary Windo is here playing sax so Carla Bley puts here focus on the keyboards and leaves her sax in it's case. She also plays organ which she didn't on "Movies" which certainly gives this a different feel. Mantler continues on trumpet while Philip Catherine is on guitar and D. Sharpe on drums.

"Movie Nine" sounds really good when the sound gets fuller. Some passion here folks. The organ floats in too. It settles back 2 1/2 minutes in then it ends with guitar and organ. "The Sinking Spell" sounds amazing with horns, guitar, drums and piano standing out. "Movie Eleven" is relaxed with horns and piano then the guitar and organ become prominant and the drums kick in. Contrasts continue. Love the heavier guitar led sections. He sounds like Rypdal after 3 minutes. "Will We Meet Tonight ?" is a catchy horn / guitar led piece as the drums pound and the organ floats. "Movie Thirteen" opens with piano only then it builds before 2 minutes. This is great !

"The Doubtful Guest" opens with guitar, drums and a full sound. Horns join in. Some nice bass before a minute as it settles back but not for long. "Movie Fifteen" opens with piano only followed by organ and a full sound before a minute. Nice guitar after 1 1/2 minutes and we get a catchy rhythm as well. Piano only ends it. "Movie Fourteen" opens with piano and drums as the guitar plays over top. Horns before 1 1/2 minutes and they will start to dominate until after 4 1/2 minutes then the guitar returns. Organ ends it. "Movie Ten" is a short piece that's bright and horn led. "Movie Twelve" is horn and drum led early then the trumpet ends up playing over top and the sax helps out. Excellent closer.

Well worth checking out if your into well done JR / Fusion.
