Exquisite World of Sound

Is it jazz? Does it matter?

This suite creates a compositional and improvisational world of sound that belongs in a category all its own. Chris Dingman is a sophisticated composer who takes you to a sonic space that feels really good, and keeps you there. It swings, but not in the traditional jazz sense - but it swings on its own terms.

This is music from its own planet.

I'm not sure that comparisons are very meaningful, but if asked I would place this recording alongside the music of the most original contemporary 'jazz' composers of our time: Maria Schneider, Darcy James Argue, and John Hollenbeck. It also has much in common with the gorgeous 'jazz' music coming out of Scandinavia, by people like Arve Henriksen, Lars Danielsen, Bugge Wesseltoft, and others.

6 Stars.
