The album opens with "a ghost of roseraie de l'hay," a pretty ballad reminiscent of Crescent-era Coltrane, with nice impressionistic piano from Togashi Hal-Oh. "gravity" trods the path of Bitches Brew Miles and Furuhashi fittingly echoes both Wayne Shorter & Bennie Maupin, playing with some of the mysteriousness of the former and displaying the blues acumen of the latter. The duet "july" with Hal-Oh again recalls an aspect of Shorter, the piece resembling the kind of thing he and Herbie Hancock have been doing for forty-some years now. The two versions of "sea" (subtitled type a & type b), combine his organic sounding flute with some electronic trickery from Tsunoda Tsuguto to form a sonic watercolor of the titular body.
The music sometimes gets freaky and loose, but Tsuyoshi always plays with logic and purpose. Even his dissonances are consonant; he gets skronky when it's called for, but never sounds histrionic. Furuhashi Tsuyoshi has to be reckoned a major talent.
