REVIEWS / REZENSIONEN

...Doran/Studer/Burri/Magnenat's latest release has grown and grown in my estimation since I rashly mistook it for quirky jazz-rock-fusion some months ago. I wan't wrong about the fusion though, "only" the way it's deployed to get to some superbly intricate free improv. You can hear the stirrings of this unexpected juxtaposition on the 1986 Christy Doran (guitar) and Fredy Studer (percussion) outing called RED TWIST & TUNED ARROW (ECM 1342) with improv guitarist Stephan Wittwer.
