||No Mystery - Robert Wyatt scores again!|
Cuckooland CD music Once again, Robert Wyatt has released a collection of songs that will haunt the listener for years. Teaming up with Karen Mantler (daughter of Carla Bley and Michael Mantler), who pens 3 of the songs, sings and plays harmonica,Annie Whitehead, Brian Eno (for a few choice bits) and others, Wyatt has once again crafted a CD that provides the listener with one exquisite moment after another. The songs tackle a range of subjects (animal rights (thanks to Mantler), Paris, war, love, etc. ) and each matches its subject with an appropriate musical mood, giving the CD a wide range of sonorities and variety. Highlights include the opener, "Just a Bit," which features Wyatt on cornet, Whitehead's trombone, and the soprano sx of Gilad Atzmon to create a shimmering wash of sound over which Wyatt's voice soars. Wyatt's cover of Jobim's "Insensatez" revisits his romantic side (a la "O Caroline") with a haunting clarinet solo by Atzmon and segues beautifully into Mister E, (a punning piece by Mantler). "Foreign Accents" strings the words Nagasaki, Hirshima, Mossadegh and Vanunu together (with others) in a harrowing repetitive fashion supported by Whitehead's trombone with Wyatt singing in both the upper and lower registers. The overall effect is stunning and chilling at the same time. This only begins to scratch the surface! Seventy+ minutes of unbelievable music.
