Damn, the Air Force is much more polite than the Navy... Our assessments were, well MUCH less politically correct at times.... Even when they were good ones.

In our 'socially-just, touchy-feely' world up here, we long ago adopted & perfected political correctness.

Drives me crazy...

Tonight I watched the Telarc DVD on my HT system that accompanies this SACD. Cameron is simply amazing.

While listening to the SACD is great, he has to be seen playing to be believed. Along with his phenomenal footwork on the pedals, he often plays 2 keyboards at the same time with the same hand - quite incredible - watch for it. I don't know if that is standard technique, but I've never seen it before. I'm rather glad that he annoys the purists as he puts on quite a show both musically & visually. I'll have to look for more of his works on DVD or Blu Ray.

BTW, that organ has more knobs, switches & controls than any aircraft cockpit that I've ever seen...

If you like fusion, Spyro Gyra's 'Good to Go-Go' is excellent. This is my second SG SACD & I really have come to enjoy their work.

Really well recorded with strong percussion that can be felt even at reasonable levels. It is recorded very hot so be careful with the volume control on your initial play.

My only quibble is: Do these selections not have real endings? Why do we have to put up with fade out endings in most of the tracks? If disc space is a problem then give me 1 less tune on the album but make sure that the rest have proper endings.

Really annoying, grrrr...

JB: Really great review by the art critic Mr Martinfield, His prose is certainly a cut above mine!

In my comments above, I'm quite distressed that I completely missed his points of: 'unending bravado, and teasing eroticism', ha!!

They're available in excellent performances with great Telarc sound here at absurdly low prices from several sellers.


Thanks John. That one has been on my wishlist for a while. For under 7 dollars, it just got promoted to 'ordered'.
