After the fiery days of summer, a spacefan's ear retunes to the mellowing notes and darkening tone colors of autumn. As the sun withdraws and the days grow short, it's time for some laid-back ambient jazz.
It's hard to say what makes it ambient. Jazz is generally all about dialogue between great players, but some of them have a contemplative bent, and a taste for larger, slower, deeper spaces. Above all, they listen......for the spaces between the notes.
Music is by HERBIE MANN, RON HART, DOUBLE IMAGE, CHICK COREA & GARY BURTON, MARILYN MAZUR & JAN GARBAREK, the MARCIN WASILEWSKI TRIO, and from Norway, the TORD GUSTAVESEN TRIO.
