Album Review

Cline, Alex – “Continuation” – [Cryptogramophone]

Cousin Mary   6/29/2010   A Library, CD

Interesting variety of sounds from bells, violin, bass, and cello with Myra Melford on piano and harmonium and Alex Cline on percussion and kantele (a type of zither). Dips into the realm of jazz and contemporary classical – sometimes is thoughtful and moody, but gets noisy and experimental at times. Energy seemed too low to me on the first listen, but I enjoyed it much more on the second hearing; perhaps its appreciation requires investment of time.

Alex Cline has performed on many recordings and is the brother of guitarist Nels Cline.

Haiku review:
