Essential: a masterpiece of psychedelic-rock music
This aptly titled album is really exactly that: the crown of their creation. And the artwork is simply a good explanation of what this music can do to your mind. Actually all these compliments I throw at the airplane are always better than the rockets fired at those flying Nam at the time. Because no doubt about it, JA were depicting sarcastically what some (obviously those that detested JA) considered the crown of human creation: the a-Bomb. And this sombre (in theme because this bright coloured photo is anything but dark) artwork is also a bit appropriate to describe the apocalyptically stunning beauty of the album’s content.
An impressive new recording by one of the most sought-after new violinists in the downtown scene. Born in California, Jenny moved to New York in 1998. Most recently heard in a variety of contexts with Bill Frisell, Jenny has also graced projects by Myra Melford, Vinicius Cantuaria and Nels Cline. Here she leads a dynamic quintet of violin, trumpet, guitar, bass and drum creating a seductive and personal take on Radical Jewish Culture. From traditional tunes to creative originals, The Rabbi’s Lover is both heartfelt and intense, lyrical and driving, a CD you will return to time and time again.
Excellent addition to any Prog-Rock music collection
This one is the jewel of Symphonic and Psychedelic-Rock from Latin America in the early seventies.
The name of the band was “Frutos Del País”, and I could compare their music with Procol Harum, which is clearly their main influence.
