the soprano sax for more than about 6 seconds. Zakir has an (otherwise)
excellent album called "Making Music" with McLaughlin, but Garbarek just
"kills" it. (not the good "kills" BTW). The combination of east/west in this
context doesn't do it for me, and the other problem is that Garbarek's
soprano level is about twice as hot as it should be. Every time he enters to
blow, I cringe. I cannot believe those crazy cats at ECM didn't notice this
minor detail. Blech.
