Rypdal, Terje / Miroslav Vitous / Jack DeJohnette - Terje Rypdal / Miroslav Vitous / Jack DeJohnette CD

SKU 28-ECMB001187502.2
"Recorded in 1978, this album represents some very fine improvisational interplay among these three brilliant musicians. The first four tunes certainly verge towards the atmospheric, each formed around basic melodies that expand, ripple, disappear, and reappear. I find 'Sunrise' and 'Will' particularly satisfying in their emotional and tonal explorations. Regarding Jack DeJohnette's playing, one hears it asked what does a drummer do if not keeping time and his lines provide something of an answer. Vitous and Rypdal (playing the occasional Fender organ) produce sympathetic timbres and lines, with Jack embracing them both. 'Flight' and 'Seasons' take off in more fusion-infused directions, though the later finds its own resolution. If you care for Vitous' 'Mountain in the Clouds' album, with its mix of the energy and contemplative tones, you will like this album. It certainly opened up space in my own ear for unscripted music."-Jonathan Sherwood
