Album Notes
On this album, saxophonist Peter Apfelbaum's world beat big band successfully walks a tightrope from genuinely attractive global jazz-fusion into reggae segues. Interesting compositions are all with brainy horn charts. At the core of "The Glow" is the idea of heavy metal guitar on top of massed polyrhythms in the horns; cool concept!. "Light Leaving the Spirit Bridge" (as one might infer from its title) is more of the same genius, as is "The Ankh." This masterpiece album ends things on a nicely focused and tuneful note "A las Estrellas (To the Stars)". Jazz musicians and lovers of world beats and global fusion will find lots to appreciate here. A must have for the true music aficionado.

Wonderful World-Jazz-Fusion-compositions presented by a wonderful L-size-ensembl
Just found this gem unreviewed. That had to be changed:

If you like to get caught by "(rather) big acoustic pictures/movies" played by more than just 4 or 5 skillful musicians, seamlessly and colorfully blending jazz&rock&world and some modern chamber music ... creating several "hymnic" anthem-like moments ... then listen to the samples here. If you like those samples, order this CD. You'll most probably love it. (And look for other albums from Peter Apfelbaum also)
