| ||David Shea Hsi-Yu Chi|
Based on a 16th-century allegorical text chronicling Taoist priest Hsuan-Tsang's trek from India to China, Hsi-Yu Chi is a sprawling record which features genres as diverse as country, jazz, rock, and Oriental music. The record flows as one long piece, and while it's all well-orchestrated, it, on occasion, collapses under the weight of its own ambition. Many songs run too long, and the transitions are sometimes too abrupt (note the number of slashes in the track listing). Features John Zorn and Marc Ribot.
| ||Seigen Ono Comme Des Garcons: Volume Two|
About on a par with Volume One, though a little more stylistically varied. "If Only You Knew," "Galope," and "Roman Marching Band" are the highlights. "Finale" is enjoyable, too: a raucous, pounding, tribal drum-led number.
| ||Seigen Ono Comme Des Garcons: Volume One|
Runway music composed for the "Comme Des Garcons" fashion show by Seigen Ono, who hired a bunch of renowned downtown New York avantgarde musicians (Arto Lindsay, John Zorn, etc.) to perform it. Volume One, this one, consists of entirely Ono's compositions; on Volume Two, his compositions are mixed with those of his collaborators. This one features one fantastic track ("All Men Are Heels") but the rest, while never bad, is somewhat throwaway.

|Britch2tiger Greetings fellow account! I noticed how you have a high percentage of jazz under your profile. From an account w/ a tuned ear, what are some qualities that differ "good" jazz as opposed to "bad" jazz? Any help would be appreciated. Have a glorious evening!|
|MyNameIsPencil Ohh. My mistake then. Although now I have to ask why do that when your main account's soundoffs are still there but whatever I guess |
