Not your garden variety, every day kind of music. A definite journey into a cosmic sound scape. It is out there, but definitely accessible. It does contain some atonal squacks, but nothing sustained. I guess you could describe it as a jazz/classical fusion. The album consist of the same composition performed by with two groups different musicians. It would be hard to get that the two groups are both trios. The two different renditions are both very interesting. This album definitely entices arm chair conducting. It will not be an easy album to find, but it is worth seeking out.
