Review by konoyaro July 6, 2008 (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
Recorded in 2000 with John Zorn, Marc Ribot, Joey Baron, Peter Scherer and others, Seigen Ono reassembled many of the players from his seminal Comme des Garçon sessions for all new compositions. Recorded direct to DSD and performed live in the studio with much of the recording studio ambience left in tact if not actively explored. Songs move in and out of moody chamber pieces (Maria 3), Bossa Nova tinge (She Is She) and Blues (Maria 8). The result is one of his more accessible studio recordings with a number of tunes that have become a staple of his live performances.
This is an excellent recording with wonderful sonics that work best in surround (IMHO) and I highly recommend it. I own the older edition which comes in a unique oversize package which is now out of print but has been reissued in a standard CD case with an altered track listing.
For users who are curious and would like to sample the reissue before they buy should go to the following link:
