REVIEWS OF POETRY FROM THE FUTURE

“ ‘For All Times’ with vibraphone heard at the outset is getting close to Eric Dolphy’s timeless masterpiece Out To Lunch! . . . this group works so well together as one cohesive unit. Listening to each other, always listening.”

“. . . the thoughtful improvisations are unpredictable yet calm and focused. . . . Much of this reminds me of Morton Feldman, sparse in part with each note being carefully selected. . . . If this is indeed Poetry from the Future, then we are in good hands.”

“. . . abounds with bright sonoristic colors and unexpected development of compositions which are almost impossible to predict. . . . everything is ruled by the power of collective creativity.”

“Their listening and responding skills are exquisitely honed—to the point of spiritual exercise — and with absolute command of their instruments, they deliver a three-dimensional music that is continually surprising and coherent. It keeps moving forward but in unexpected paths — kind of an aural equivalent of the three-dimensional patterns that a cloud of starlings creates in the air. . . .The music breathes from beginning to end.”

“To Be Continued takes a new approach. . . .The result is the art of sound. . . . It is the perfect album for jazz fans who think they have heard it all when it comes to improvised jazz.”
