Appearances by

Asaf Sirkis, Frank Harrison

"Only recently did I begin to understand that nostalgia is a feeling of longing for an unfulfilled past, a feeling of desire for an era that has never been properly touched nor experienced. When I come to think about myself, about my life and my memories, I tend to think that I was born at the wrong time and in the wrong place. At the wrong time because I was born when Jazz , the musical language I understand the best, became a retrospective' art form rather than an authentic expression. In the wrong place because I was born in a small, colonial, nationalistic province in the eastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea.

I was brought up in a land which had been taken by force. I was brought up to be an oppressor, a role which didn't suit me and which I couldn't accept. As a youngster, I used to sit on the seashore looking into the deep green with my face to the West. I remember standing with my feet in the water reflecting on the ocean of ideas that came from far off places. I used to muse over all those original philosophical and social concepts. I would close my eyes, meditate over Italian melodies and Afro-American sounds and recollect film scenes in black and white. I wanted, one day, to be able to bridge those waters and become part of that big western culture. In my early thirties I left my homeland and settled in London. This album is an illustration of my memories from the eashore. It is about unfulfilled dreams and fragmented melodies. It is about a fantasy that dissolved into a broken rhythmic reality". Gilad Atzmon

Reviews

 

01/01/2001 John Fordham - Guardian Unlimited

"Atzmon has a spine-tingling tone on saxophones and clarinet, and the capacity to evoke human sounds from cries to whispers. Over piano chords that tolled like a church clock, and scurrying hand-drumming from the excellent Asaf Sirkis, Atzmon's weaving and cajoling clarinet hypnotised the audience. Switching to soprano and again unfurling a sound of tremulous grace, Atzmon at first sustained the reflective ballad mood, but gradually quickened its pulse into eager swing, through which the melody of Some Day My Prince Will Come emerged".
