I am not difficult to move. If I had money I should fly from one city to another endlessly. Moscow, February 21, Thank you for the flattering things you say about my work and for having published my story so soon.
You can judge yourself how refreshing, even inspiring, the kind attention of an experienced and gifted writer like yourself has been to me. I agree with what you say about the end of my story which you have cut out; thank you for the help- ful advice.
I have been writing for the last six years, but you are the first person who has taken the trouble to advise and explain. I do Breath Of Spring （春の息吹 English Ver.） - Toshl* - 武士Japan English Ver. write very much not more than two or three short stories weekly.
Moscow, March 28, Your letter, my kind, fervently beloved bringer of good She Works Hard For The Money - Donna Summer - A Hot Summer Night (Laserdisc), struck me like a flash of lightning. I almost burst into tears, I was overwhelmed, and now I feel it has left a deep trace in my soul! I can find neither words nor deeds While You Were Sleeping - Frogg Cafe - Frogg Cafe thank you.
You know with what eyes ordinary people look at the elect such as you, and so you can judge what your letter means for my self-esteem. It is better than any diploma, and for a writer who is just beginning it is payment both for the present and the future. I am almost dazed. I have no power to judge whether I deserve this high reward.
I only repeat that it has overwhelmed me. If I have a gift which one ought to respect, I confess before the pure candour of your heart that hitherto I have not respected it. I felt that I had a gift, but I had got into the habit of thinking that it was insignificant. Purely external causes are sufficient to make one unjust to oneself, suspicious, and morbidly sensitive. And as I realize now I have always had plenty of such causes.
All my friends and relatives have always taken a condescend- ing tone to my writing, and never ceased urging me in a friendly way not to give up real work for the sake of scribbling. I have hundreds of friends in Moscow, and among them a dozen or two writ- ers, but I cannot recall a single one who reads me or considers me an artist. In Moscow there is a so-called Literary Circle: talented people and medioc- rities of all ages and colours gather once a week in a private room of a restaurant and exercise their tongues.
If I went there and read them a single passage of your letter, they would laugh in my face. I soon got used to looking down upon my work, and so it has gone from bad to worse. That is the first reason. The second is that I am a doctor, and am up Lo my ears in medical work, so that the proverb about trying to catch two hares has given to no one more sleepless nights than me.
I am writing all this to you in order to excuse this grievous sin a little before you. Hitherto my attitude to my literary work has been frivolous, heed- less, casual. I don't remember a single story over which I have spent more than twenty-four hours, and "The Huntsman," which you liked, I wrote in the bathing-shed! I wrote my stories as reporters write their notes about fires, mechanically, half-un- consciously, taking no thought of the reader or my- self.
I wrote and did all I could not to waste upon the story the scenes and images dear to me which God knows why I have treasured and kept carefully hidden. The first impulse to self-criticism was given me by a very kind and, to the best of my belief, sincere letter from Suvorin.
I began to think of writing something decent, but I still had no faith in my being Only Sixteen - Various - Dance Party - The Rocking 50s good as a writer.
And then, unexpected and undreamed of, came your letter. Forgive the comparison: it had on me the effect of a Governor's order to clear out of the town within twenty-four hours i. I agree with you in everything. When I saw "The Witch" in print I felt myself the cynicism of the points to which you call my attention. I shall put an end to working against time, but cannot do so just yet. It is impossible to get out of the rut I have got into.
I have nothing against going hungry, as I have done in the past, but it is not a question of myself. I give to literature my spare time, two or three hours a day and a bit of the night, that is, time which is of no use except for short things. In the summer, when I have more time and have fewer expenses, I will start on some serious work.
I cannot put my real name on the book because it is too late: the design for the cover is ready and the book printed. I dislike my book very much. It's a hotch-potch, a disorderly medley of the poor stuff I wrote as a student, While You Were Sleeping - Frogg Cafe - Frogg Cafe by the censor and by the editors of comic papers.
I am sure that many people will be disappointed when they read it. Had I known that I had readers and that you were watching me, I would not have published this book. I rest all my hopes on the future. I am only twenty-six. Perhaps I shall succeed in doing some- thing, though time flies fast. Forgive my long letter and do not blame a man because, for the first time in his life, he has made bold to treat himself to the pleasure of writing to Grigorovitch.
Send me your photograph, if possible. God grant you health and happiness, and believe in the sincerity of your deeply respectful and grateful A. Moscow, April 6, I am ill. Spitting of blood and weakness. I am not writing anything. If I don't sit down to write to-morrow, you must forgive me I shall not send you a story for the Easter number. I ought to go to the South but I have no money. I am afraid to submit myself to be sounded by my col- leagues.
I am inclined to think it is not so much my lungs as my throat that is at fault. I have no fever. It was noon. The setting sun with its crimson, fiery rays gilded the tops of pines, oaks, and fir-trees. The driver turned round and said: "More snow has fallen, sir.

The sun was shining. A young widow, bathed in tears, was standing by, and in her grief sopping her whole handkerchief. Moscow, September 21, It is not much fun to be a great writer.
To begin with, it's a dreary life. Work from morning till night and not much to show for it. Money is as scarce as cats' tears. I don't know how it is with Zola and Shtchedrin, but in my flat it is cold and smoky. They give me cigarettes, as before, on holidays only. Impossible cigarettes!
Hard, damp, sausage-like. Before I begin to smoke I light the lamp, dry the cigarette over it, and only then I tegin on it; the lamp smokes, the cigarette splutters and turns brown, I burn my fingers I am more or less ill, and am gradually turn- ing into a dried dragon-fly. I go about as festive as though it were my rirthday, but to judge from the critical glances of he lady cashier at the Budilnik, I am not dressed n the height of fashion, and my clothes are not rand-new. I go in buses, not in cabs.
But being a writer has its good points. In the irst place, my book, I hear, is going rather well; econdly, in October I shall have money; thirdly, I Lin beginning to reap laurels: at the refreshment bars eople point at me with their fingers, they pay me ittle attentions and treat me to sandwiches. Korsh aught me in his theatre and straight away presented tie with a free pass. My medical colleagues igh when they meet me, begin to talk of literature nd assure me that they are sick of medicine.

This morning an individual sent by Prince Urusov urned up and asked me for a short story for a sport- ag magazine edited by the said Prince. I refused, f course, as I now refuse all who come with sup- ilications to the foot of my pedestal. In Russia here are now two unattainable heights : Mount El- orus and myself.
I thought a little, and very oppor- tunely Mandatory Suicide - Slayer - Serenity In Murder a lady writer who dreams of glory and has for the last year been ill with envy of my literary fame.
In short, I gave him your ad- dress. You might write a story "The Wounded Doe" you remember, how the huntsmen wound a doe; she looks at them with human eyes, and no one can bring himself to kill her. It's not a bad subject, but dangerous because it is difficult to avoid sentimentality you must write it like a re- port, without pathetic phrases, and begin like this: "On such and such a date the huntsmen in the Daraganov forest wounded a young doe.
December With your permission I steal out of your last two letters to my sister two descriptions of na- ture for my stories. It is curious that you have quite a masculine way of writing. In every line except when dealing with children you are a man! This, of course, ought to flatter your vanity, for speaking generally, men are a thousand times better than women, and superior to them.
In Petersburg I was resting i. Alas and alack! In Petersburg I am becoming fashionable like Nana. Even th6 senator G. It is gratifying, but my literary feeling is wounded. I feel ashamed of the public which runs after lap-dogs simply because it fails to notice elephants, and I am deeply convinced that not a soul will know me when I begin to work in earnest. You have often complained to me that people "don't understand you"!
Goethe and New- ton did not complain of that. Only Christ complained of it, but He was speaking of His doc- trine and not of Himself. People understand you perfectly well. And if you do not understand yourself, it is not their fault. I assure you as a brother and as a friend I under- stand you and feel for you with all my heart. I know your good qualities as I know my five fingers; I value and deeply respect them. If you like, to prove that I understand you, I can enumerate those qualities. I think you are kind to the point of soft- ness, magnanimous, unselfish, ready to share your last farthing; you have no Cut Throat - Korn - Rap Sessions nor hatred; you are simple-hearted, you pity men While You Were Sleeping - Frogg Cafe - Frogg Cafe beasts; you are trustful, without spite or guile, and do not remember evil.
You have a gift from above such as other people have not: you have talent. This talent places you above millions of men, for on earth only one out of two millions is an artist. You have only one failing, and the falseness of your position, and your unhappmess and your catarrh of the bowels are all due to it. That is your utter lack of culture.
Forgive me, please, but veritas magis amicitice. You see, life has its conditions. In order to feel comfortable among educated people, to be at home and happy with them, one must be cultured to a certain extent. Talent has brought you into such a circle, you belong to it, but. Cultured people must, in my opinion, satisfy the following conditions: 1. They respect human personality, and therefore they are always kind, gentle, polite, and ready to give in to others.
They do not make a row because of a hammer or a lost piece of india-rubber; if they live with anyone they do not regard it as a favour and, go- Decipis - Medum - Thewiof (File, Album) away, they do not say "nobody can live with you. They have sympathy not for beggars and cats alone.
Their heart aches for what the eye does not see. They sit up at night in order to help P. They respect the property of others, and there- for pay their debts. They are sincere, and dread lying like fire. A lie is insult- ing to the listener and puts him in a lower position in the eyes of the speaker. They do not pose, they behave in the street as they do at home, they do not show off before their humbler comrades. They are not given to babbling and forcing their uninvited confidences on others: Out of respect for other people's ears they more often keep silent than talk.
They do not disparage themselves to rouse com- passion. They do not play on the strings of other people's hearts so that they may sigh and make much of them. They do not say "I am misunderstood," or "I have become second-rate," because all this is striving after Thanya - Freedom effect, is vulgar, stale, false.
They have no shallow vanity. They do not care for such false diamonds as knowing celebrities, shaking hands with the drunken P. If they do a pennyworth they do not strut about as though they had done a hundred roubles' worth, and do not brag of having the entry where others are not ad- mitted. The truly talented always keep in obscurity among the crowd, as far as possible from advertisement.
Even Krylov has said that an empty barrel echoes more loudly than a full one. If they have a talent they respect it. They sacrifice to it rest, women, wine, vanity. They are proud of their talent. Besides, they are fastidious. Translator's Note. They develop the aesthetic feeling in them- selves. They cannot go to sleep in their clothes, see cracks full of bugs on the walls, breathe bad air, walk on a floor that has been spat upon, cook their meals over an oil stove.
They seek as far as possible to restrain and ennoble the sexual instinct. What they want in a woman is not a bed-fel- low. They want especially, if they are artists, freshness, elegance, humanity, the capacity for motherhood. They do not swill vodka at all hours of the day and night, do not sniff at cupboards, for they are not pigs and know they are not.
They drink only when they are free, on occasion. For they want mens sana in cor- pore sano. And so on. This is what cultured people are like. In order to be cultured and not to stand below the level of your surroundings it is not enough to have read "The Pickwick Papers" and learnt a mono- logue from "Faust. What is needed is constant work, day and night, constant reading, study, will. Every hour is precious for it. Come to us, smash the vodka bottle, lie down and read.
Turgenev, if you like, whom you have not read. You must drop your vanity, you are not a child. Love Will Find A Way - Various - Listen Listen ! is time!
I expect you. We all expect you. Moscow, January 14, Even your praise of "On the Road" has not oftened my anger as an author, and I hasten to venge myself for "Mire. Well, I begin. One meets every critical article with a silent bow ven if it is abusive and unjust such is the literary itiquette. It is not the thing to answer, and all vho do answer are justly blamed foi excessive r anity. But since your criticism has the nature of 'an evening conversation on the steps of the Bab- dno lodge".
In the first place, I, like you, do not like litera- ure of the kind we are discussing. As a reader and 'a private resident" I am glad to avoid it, but if you isk my honest and sincere opinion about it, I shall say that it is still an open question whether it has a right to exist, and no one has yet settled it.
Neither you nor I, nor all the critics in the world, have any trustworthy data that would give them the right to reject such literature. I do not know which has bad taste the Greeks who were not ashamed to describe love as it really is in beautiful nature, or the readers of Gaboriau, Marlitz, Pierre Bobo. We can only refer to it, but are not competent to decide it.
Reference to Turgenev and Tolstoy who avoided the "muck heap" does not throw light on the question. Their fastidiousness does not prove anything; why, before them there was a generation of writers who regarded as dirty not only accounts of "the dregs and scum. Besides, one period, however brilliant, does not entitle us to draw conclusions in favour of this or that literary tendency.
Reference to the demoralizing effects of the literary tendency we are discussing does not decide the question either. Everything in this world is relative and approximate. There are people who can be demoralized even by children's books, and who read with particular pleas- ure the piquant passages in the Psalms and in Solomon's Proverbs, while there are others who be- come only the purer from closer knowledge of the filthy side of life.
Political and social writers, lawyers, and doctors who are initiated into all the mysteries of human sinfulness are not reputed to be immoral; realistic writers are often more moral than archimandrites. And, finally, no literature can outdo real life in its cynicism, a wineglassful won't make a man drunk when he has already emptied a barrel.
That the world swarms with "dregs and urn" is perfectly true. Human nature is imper- ct, and it would therefore be strange to see none it righteous ones on earth. But to think that the ity of literature is to unearth the pearl from the fuse heap means to reject literature itself. Its vocation is to be absolutely tie and honest. To narrow down its function to e particular task of finding "pearls" is as deadly r it as it would be to make Levitan draw a tree ithout including the dirty bark and the yellow aves.
I agree that "pearls" are a good thing, but en a writer is not a confectioner, not a provider of emetics, not an entertainer; he is a man bound, ider contract, by his sense of duty and his con- ience; having put his hand to the plough he ustn't turn back, and, however distasteful, he must mquer his squeamishness and soil his imagination ith the dirt of life.
He is just like any ordinary jporter. What would you say if a newspaper cor- ispondent out of a feeling of fastidiousness or from wish to please his readers would describe only Diiest mayors, high-minded ladies, and virtuous rail- ay contractors? To a chemist nothing on earth is unclean. A riter must be as objective as a chemist, he must ty aside his personal subjective standpoint and mst understand that muck heaps play a very respect- ble part in a landscape, and that the evil passions re as inherent in life as the good ones.
Writers are the children of their age, and there- ire, like everybody else, must submit to the external onditions of the life of the community. This is the only thing we have a right to ask of realistic writers.
But you say nothing against the form and executions of "Mire. And so I suppose I have been decent. I confess I seldom commune with my con- science when I write. This is due to habit and the brevity of my work. And so when I express this or that opinion about literature, I do not take myself into account.
You write: "If I were the editor I would have returned this feuilleton to you for your own good. Why not muzzle the editors themselves who publish such stories? Why not send a reprimand to the Headquarters of the Press Department for not suppressing immoral news- papers?
The fate of literature would be sad indeed if it were at the mercy of individual views. That is the first thing. Secondly, there is no police which could consider itself competent in literary matters. I agree that one can't dispense with the reins and the whip altogether, for knaves find their way even into literature, but no thinking will discover a better police for literature than the critics and the author's own conscience. People have been trying to discover such a police since the creation of the world, but they have found nothing better.
Here you would like me to lose one hundred and fifteen roubles and be put to shame by the editor; others, your father among them, are delighted with the story. Some send insulting letters to Suvorin, pouring abuse on the paper and on me, etc.
Who, then, is right? Who is the true judge? A condescending and contemp- tuous tone towards humble people simply because they are humble does no credit to the heart.
In liter- ature the lower ranks are as necessary as in the army this is what the head says, and the heart ought to say still more. I have wearied you with my drawn-out reflections. Had I known my criticism would turn out so long I would not have written it. Please for- give me! You have read my "On the Road. I write of "intellectual" sub- jects and am not afraid. In Petersburg I excite a regular furore. A short time ago I discoursed upon non-resistance to evil, and also surprised the public.
On New Year's Day all the papers presented me with a compliment, and in the December number of the Russkoye Bogatstvo, in which Tolstoy writes, there is an article thiity-two pages Ion 3 by Obolensky en- titled "Chekhov and Korolenko.
He is probably talking rot, but, anyway, I am beginning to be conscious of one merit of mine : I am the only writer who, without ever publishing anything in the thick monthlies, has merely on the strength of writing newspaper rubbish won the attention of the lop-eared critics there has been no instance of this before. It will take fifteen to twenty minutes to act.
It is much better to write small things than big ones: they are unpretentious and successful. What more would you have? I wrote my play in an hour and five minutes. I began another, but have not finished it, for I have no time. Moscow, January 18, During the holidays I was so overwhelmed with work that on Mother's name-day I was almost dropping with exhaustion. I must tell you that in Petersburg I am now the most fashionable writer.
One can see that from papers and magazines, which at the end of were taken up with me, bandied my name about, and praised me beyond my deserts.
The result of this growth of my literary reputation is that I get a num- ber of orders and invitations and this is followed by work at high pressure and exhaustion. My work is nervous, disturbing, and involving strain. It is pub- lic and responsible, which makes it doubly hard.
Every newspaper report about me agitates both me and my family. My stories are read at pub- lic recitations, wherever I go people point at me, I am overwhelmed with acquaintances, and so on, and so on.
I have not a day of peace, and feel as though I were on thorns every moment. It is true that a lan cannot possess the world, but a man can be illed "the lord of the world.
The fact is we exalt, Dt a man as such, but his good qualities, just that di- ne principle which he has succeeded in developing himself to a high degree. Thus remarkable kings e called "great," though bodily they may not be Her than I. Loboda; the Pope is called "Holi- 'ss," the patriarch used to be called "Ecumenical," though he was not in relations with any planet but e earth; Prince Vladimir was called "the lord of e world," though he ruled only a small strip of ound, princes are called "serene" and "illus- ous," though a Swedish match is a thousand times ighter than they are and so on.
In using these pressions we do not lie or exaggerate, but simply press our delight, just as a mother does not lie when 3 calls her child "my golden one. The feeling of beauty in man knows no limits or bounds. This is why a Russian prince may be called "the lord of the world"; and my friend Volodya may have the same name, for names are given to people, not for their merits, Im The Master - Various - Parhasar Compilation Volume 1 in honour and commemoration of remarkable men of the past.
If your young scholar does not agree with me, I have one more argument which will be sure to appeal to him: in exalting peo- ple even to God we do not sin against love, but, on the contrary, we express it. One must not humiliate people that is the chief thing. Bet- ter say to man "My angel" than hurl "Fool" at his head though men are more like fools than they are like angels. The journey from Moscow to Serpuhov was dull. My fellow-travellers were practical persons of strong character who did Spelling Bee - Ron Jarzombek - Solitarily Speaking Of Theoretical Confinement but talk of the prices of flour.
At twelve o'clock we were at Kursk. An hour of waiting, a glass of vodka, a tidy-up and a wash, and cabbage soup. Change to another train. The carriage was crammed full. Immediately after Kursk I made friends with my neighbours: a land- owner from Harkov, as jocose as Sasha K. We settled social questions. The general's arguments were sound, short, and liberal; the police captain was the type of an old battered sinner of an hussar yearning for amorous adventures.
He had the affectations of a governor: he opened his mouth long Carrion - Kreator - MP3 he began to speak, and having said a word he gave a long growl like a dog, "er-r-r.
At Belgrade I had cabbage soup. We got to Harkov at nine o'clock. A touching parting from the police captain, the general and the others. I woke up at Slavyansk and sent you a postcard. A new lot of passengers got in: a landowner and a railway inspector. We While You Were Sleeping - Frogg Cafe - Frogg Cafe of railways.
The in- spector told us how the Sevastopol railway stole three hundred carriages from the Azov line and painted them its own colour. Twelve o'clock. Lovely weather. There is a scent of the steppe and one heais the birds sing. I see my old friends the ravens flying over the steppe. The barrows, the water-towers, the buildings everything is familiar and well-remembered. At the station I have Its Only Love - Peter Cetera - Another Perfect World helping of remarkably good and rich sorrel soup.
Then I walk along the platform. Young ladies. At an upper window at the far end of the station sits a young girl or a married lady, goodness knows which in a white blouse, beautiful and languid. I put on my glasses, she does the same. I caught a catarrh of the heart and continued my journey. The weather is devilishly, revoltingly fine. Little Russians, oxen, ravens, white huts, rivers, the line of the Donets railway with one telegraph wire, daughters of landowners and farmers, red dogs, the trees it all flits by like a dream.
It is hot. The inspector begins to bore me. The rissoles and pies, half of which I have not got through, begin to smell bitter. I shove them under somebody else's seat, together with the remains of the vodka. I arrive at Taganrog. All the houses look flattened out, and as though they had Everybodys Somebodys Fool - Lionel Hampton - The Best Of Lionel Hampton needed replastering, the roofs want painting, the shutters are closed.
At eight o'clock in the evening my uncle, his family, Irina, the dogs, the rats that live in the store- room, the rabbits were fast asleep. There was noth- ing for it but to go to bed too. I sleep on the draw- ing-room sofa. The sofa has not inci eased in length, and is as short as it was before, and so when I go to bed I have either to stick up my legs in an unseemly way or to let them hang down to the floor. I think of Procrustes and his bed. April 6. I wake up at five. The sky is grey. There is a cold, unpleasant wind that reminds one of Moscow.
It is dull. In the cathedral it is all very charming, lecorous, and not boring. The choir sings well, not it all in a plebeian style, and the congregation en- irely consists of young ladies in olive-green dresses ind chocolate-coloured jackets. April 8, 9, and Frightfully dull. It is cold and grey. During all my stay in Taganrog I could only do ustice to the following things : remarkably good ring oils sold at the market, the Santurninsky wine, fresh caviare, excellent crabs and uncle's genuine hospital- ty.
Everything else is poor and not to be envied. Fhe young ladies here are not bad, but it takes some ime to get used to them. They are abrupt in their movements, frivolous in their attitude to men, run iway from their parents with actors, laugh loudly, 3asily fall in love, whistle to dogs, drink wine, 3tc.
On Saturday I continued my journey. At the Moskaya station the air is lovely and fresh, caviare is seventy kopecks a pound. At Rostdov I had two hours to wait, at Taganrog twenty. I spent the night at an acquaintance's. The devil only knows what I haven't spent a night on: on beds with bugs, on sofas, settees, boxes.
Last night I spent in a long and narrow parlour on a sofa under a looking- glass. April Yesterday was the wedding a real Cossack wedding with music, feminine bleating, and revolting 'drunkenness. The bride is sixteen. They were married in the cathedral.
In Moscow such a best man would have bee ; kicked out, but here I looked smarter than any- one. I saw many rich and eligible young ladies. Thf choice is enormous, but I was so drunk all the tim j that I took bottles for young ladies and young ladit- for bottles.
Probably owing to my diunken condi- tion the local ladies found me witty and satirical! One of them, the boldest anJ the most brainy, wishing to show that she is not a stranger to social polish and subtlety, kept slapping me on the hand and saying, "Oh, you wretch!
The inflammation cf the vein m my left leg got worse through their kisses. At Zvyerevo I shall have to wait from nint m the evening till five in the morning. Last timr I spent the night there in a second-class railway-car- riage on the siding.
It is a picture one would not forget for ages and jes. It is April The evening is warm. There are 3rm-clouds about, and so one cannot see a thing, le air is close and there is a smell of grass.
I am staying in the Ragozina Balka at K. There are three rooms, th earthen floors, crooked ceilings, and windows at lift up and down instead of opening outwards.
This song is one of the best on the album, IMO. All in all this is a fantastic album. Any fan of jazz, fusion, Zappa, or just great music should check this one out. You will not be disappointed. Highly Recommended!! The opener "Deltitnu" is already a great instrumental mix of jazz-rock with folk-ish fiddling presented with an amazing freewheeling complexity. Apart of the great violin there is as well the excellent bass playing worth to mention. After While You Were Sleeping - Frogg Cafe - Frogg Cafe more quiet and retained beginning the song takes a very interesting direction with compelling violin play, some acoustic moments and a few slightly odd-timed bars as well.
Finest prog done the way we that means retro prog fans like me love it so much. Great as well the two parts of "Candy Corn" - trumpet meets violin before the vocals are coming in with a more quiet and dragging vein. Part two has a melancholic trumpet solo followed by a great jazzy section with Bill Ayasse 's awesome violin play on top of it.
Next track "While You Were Sleeping" is again a bit melancholic one, it starts with alternating violin and electric guitar accompanied by piano, around it changes to a cool swinging "bar jazz"-section and at the whole thing has been garnished by a great guitar solo. Really a very enjoyable and versatile song, just marvellous!
Finally again a wonderful guitar solo. As the previous one worth for 5 stars! A very intricate track dominated by violin and excellent as well. Very nice melancholic song and another one I'd rate with 5 stars. BTW I'd like to say many thanks to my co-reviewer Danbo for introducing me to this great band.
But I'm lucky because I got the re-mastered edition with top notch sonic quality and bonus track live. Starts off with "Deltitnu", you might guess it's a jazz band and nothing wrong with you at all. But it's not purely jazz as there is no repeated rhythm section and one instrument takes the solo journey on top of that rhythm. Me About You - Bobby Darin - If I Were A Carpenter & Inside Out is the part of jazz that I usually don't like.
Bill Ayasse is the violin virtuoso as he plays melodic and dynamic lines in almost all tracks featured in this album. Rosalita - Agathocles / Jefe De La Morgue / Exacerbacion* / Grotescólandia - No Fear To Oppressors two-part "Candy Korn" blends the components of jazz and vocal line that might bring you to Kansas - but it's not really, because it's different.
This CD is the kind of music that blow me away at first spin, and in fact I tend to reject it. Thanks to the high quality sonic production with this remastered issue that stimulates me to have another spin. After four or five spins I can then enjoy the music. It's an excellent addition to any prog music collection. If you like jazz-influenced music, this is a MUST for you to have it. Keep on proggin'.! Super-talented US band coming from the New-York area.

Vocals are added where they should be,delivering obsure harmonies in the vein of GENTLE GIANT,but there are also plenty of melodic guitars and pleasant organ throughout to make this effort quite acceptable and not overly complex.
