Jazz: Currently Spinning

Recommended Posts

Something of a minor enigma this one. The name Lars Danielsson hooked me in, that and the ten bucks entry fee. Lars is a top quality bassist who doesn't put his name to any ol' shyte and ACT label is a recommendation in itself, so I felt I couldn't go too far wrong at purchase. (Dada's Records East Perth)

 

Nor did I, as this CD has some amazing moments and then again a few poor choices that a have me gritting my teeth. Anyone who can enjoy their version of John Lennon's 'Imagine' is a far more load-worthy donkey than I. What's it even doing there! Generally, covering a band as unique as EST and Esbjorn's songs is asking for trouble but they just about manage to do the songs justice with a couple of stand-outs. 'Dodge the Dodo' had me "HELL YEAH"-ing at the end and the very nice voice of  Viktoria Tolstoy truly shines on 'Shining on You'

 

A 6 or 7 album with a couple of 10 moments

I wish I had heard of CP when i was in year 11!  What I like about the album,  is the SQ is OK, as CP died on the cusp of improved recording technology & the adoption of the LP 33  1/3rd rollout by consumers.
