Well I'm all for defying boundaries, and often get perplexed with reviewers who dismiss recordings for simply not being jazz, ignoring what musical value it may have outside of such considerations. So what can I say? New Age fans may love this recording. Smooth jazz lovers also. If you like Yanni, for example, you will probably enjoy this, especially if you like the Celtic overtones. But it certainly does not have the essential features needed for a great jazz recording. Can anyone say what these are? That's a tough one, but for me they are passion, spontaneity, a sense of musical interaction among the performers, and, of course, that certain je ne sais quoi that no-one can really put their finger on. The question is, are these also the criteria for any truly great music? I believe they are. And I don't find them here.
Keith Jarrett once referred to New Age music as "lobotomy music." This is a bit more lively than that and, as I have already said, it is well performed and very professionally produced. It is, indeed, pleasant enough to listen to. It just doesn't do anything for me and so, on that basis, I would judge that if you are looking for great jazz, which you should be at jazzreview.com, then this is not for you.
