ROVA:ORKESTROVA: Electric Ascension
The Rova Saxophone Quartet with guests Fred Frith, Ikue Mori, Chris Brown, Otomo Yoshihide, Nels Cline, Don Robertson (drums), Carla Kihlsteht and Jenny Scheinman (violins) with a well recorded live version of Coltrane's 'Ascension'. An interesting idea, and I bet a great concert. As a record it has great moments, but is sufficiently close to the original to invite comparison and not far enough away from it to break into new territory. A tribute, and nicely done.
