Album: Tim Garland, Libra, (Global Mix)
Sunday 18 January 2009
Two CDs, one subtitled "Sun", the other "Moon". A notated suite for the Royal Phil entitled "Frontier" and dedicated to Gunther Schuller. Extensive notes. Lush visuals.
Here be art. Here also be a measure of sententiousness. Which brings an atmosphere of overreach to an imposing 100 minutes of music put together by the British saxophonist/clarinettist with his slippery Lighthouse Trio. The "Moon" disc, incidentally, was recorded live at a variety of venues. Weighty, ambitious, a tad showy.
Pick of the album: 'SunGod': never mind the depth, feel the texture
