Musicianship beyond words
Great to hear more original stuff from Dominic. 3 or 4 elevator music albums, then NOVEMBER broke the mold and really highlighted what Dom is all about.
5th House are some of the worlds best musicians collaberating at a level so often not allowed to come through when they are playing behind major artists. Pino Palladino has some kind of 6th sense when it comes to how every note and line work so incredibly well, underpinning everything. Vinnie - what can one say - a human machine working at a level that is impossible to comprehend.
The tunes themselves are, in my opinion and compared to NOVEMBER, not as adventerous and dynamic but still played with brilliance by everyone. I love TOKYO, so descriptive and energetic and SPIRIT LEVEL a work of genius. Perhaps the rest will take a little more listening to but overall, did not grab as instantly and overwhelmingly as NOVEMBER.
