Things Behind The Sun

by Jon Durant

Ambient, expansive, far-reaching, progressive jazz fusion that doesn't shy away from the intimate and dives without hesitation into the adventurous. This is jazz fusion at its most expressive and colorful.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
JD's 5th, and most extraordinary, recording brings yet another shift in his musical vision. While maintaining many of the "minimalist" elements of "Brief Light," the tuned percussion ostinatas, and multiple interlocking guitar parts, "Things Behind The Sun" offers a much jazzier element than any of his CDs. Featuring Tony Levin and Vinny Sabatino, "Things Behind The Sun" is Durant's most guitaristic recording to date, offering glimpses of chordal work never before heard on JDs records. In many pieces the customary cloud guitars have been replaced with layered voicings across intricate chord progressions that bring to mind such diverse influences as Eberhard Weber and Allan Holdsworth.

Rarity
I begin listening to every record I hear with the bias of being a percussionist and drummer. Its rare to find a record thtat really offers me something as a player. There is only a handful that I can sit down with behind a kit and play along with and truly feel like i can connect with all the small details in the arrangment and that Mr. Durant is speaking to me as an audience as well. Of course it helps to have Tony Levin on bass. Great record.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby


Ambient, expansive, far-reaching, progressive jazz fusion that doesn't shy away from the intimate and dives without hesitation into the adventurous. With swirling guitars, thick bass and minimalistic, cyclic grooves, the album encircles the listener with an aromatic, dewy atmosphere. Jon Durant weaves a moody, feeling sound tapping into new age and pop writing- one might even hear distant echoes of something Sting-like. This is jazz fusion at its most expressive and colorful.

atmospheric jazz-rock of great beauty
The last couple of months I've been gathering Jon Durant's ambient guitar-albums and after having all four of them it was a great surprise to see CDBaby had his fifth in stock. Although Jon is still a master of atmosphere, his use of the cloud guitar is less frequent. Instead of that he plays more on "normal" guitars and creates beautiful melodies, that are seldom heard in the style he's performing in, jazz-rock. It reminds me of another spheric highlight in this genre: Steve Topping's Late Flower. Jon has a great backing band, with the famous Tony Levin (this time no Chapman Stick, but only an impressive upright bass) and the relaxed drumming Vinny Sabatino. Most impressive track is the 10 minute clocking An Afternoon Entangled, which has an almost symphonic sound-pallet.

este rendicion de \"jazz climatico\" es us una grabacion estupenda. Los detalles conectan todos
los \"nuances\" de esta clase de jazz. Tal usando percusivo y una frecuencia de guitara, la combinacion es bella.
