2 stars Jazz-Rock/Fusion? I beg your pardon?

It's hard for me to fathom as how this release was listed under that genre. With the same token, it could have been listed as virtually anything else, on the basis that the same instrument could have been used in many different styles. Period.

Now, don't get me wrong, these soundscapes would provide quite pleasant background music to a romantic, candlelit dinner for two. Maybe Nature movies where glaciers are slowly crumbling to their majestic expiry. Or filler material on Enya albums.

Meandering piano, gentle woodwinds, some vocal noodlings deliver pleasant and inoffensive minimalist pieces that virtually any age group of any musical preference could sleep right though during a Sunday afternoon siesta. But Jazz-Rock/Fusion it ain't.

Honestly, I enjoyed listening to this material while pottering around at home as it took absolutely no toll on my attention to other things.Would I put it on again? Highly unlikely, unless wanting to break the uncomfortable silence when there is little to talk about with visiting in-laws. This piece would put them to sleep and me to comfort, so maybe I'll keep it after all...

Again, it's pleasant enough, but hardly essential as one can hear zillions of the likes any day on Radio, or TV, performed by faceless hired hands. I'd rather FINISTERE, any day.

BORA | 2/5 |
