Album Review

A 1973 classic, Monk's modern folk music from her beautiful and noble performance — ceremonies that recall former times and a lineage of human understanding beyond the present state of things. Songs include "Porch," "Under Street," "What Does it Mean?," "Vision," "Fat Stream," "Do you be?" "Vision" (reprise), "Change," and "Dungeon" with Meredith Monk, voice, organ, jew's harp; Daniel Ira Sverdlik, Dick Higgins, Colin Walcott, Lanny Harrison, and Mark Monstermaker, voices. See also her beautiful "Phantom Waltz" in the collection U.S. Choices by the piano duet Double Edge. ~ "Blue" Gene Tyranny, Rovi
