Colin Stetson is a horn player of uncommon strength, skill and genre-defying creativity. He composes and performs otherworldly songs that combine a mastery of circular breathing technique with percussive valve-work and reed vocalizations. This is Colin's second solo record and his first for Constellation. Stetson has been making his mark as a staggering solo performer for several years now, opening for Arcade Fire and The National, and playing at jazz and new music festivals like Moers and London Jazz. His talents have been employed by artists as diverse as Tom Waits, Antibalas and Bon Iver.

The experience of the album rewards the effort. The music sounds like battle, but the violence is beautifully heroic. There is an undercurrent of masculine virility that transforms the work into something monumental. The sound expresses a grandeur and expansiveness that evokes a historic struggle. The album leaves you feeling exhausted but elated.
Colin Stetson's own brand of experimental jazz is just heart-stopping! And Laurie Anderson's work on this CD is her usual best. :) It's not for everybody but it certainly is for ME!!
