This is a tremendous album. I'm a big fan of all of the work of Vicente and Dos Rios, but what pushes this album to an even higher level is the percussion. But all of the musicians are terrific.
The eponymous title is introduced by an expressive dialogue of strings between the violinist and the double bass player. What comes next has a spectral beauty, the five bandmates improvising spontaneously a moving sound mass which rises in power very slowly like a tide. This is a perfect piece to illustrate the inexorable movement of the Solaris protoplasmic ocean. In the end, though, the triumph of this music is to charge off in the direction of something entirely new. Dragonjazz
