It's about time that Harrison's uniquely beautiful oeuvre is starting to get the attention that it surely deserves. After all, where else can we find a voice in contemporary music so immediately attractive, original, and completely uninhibited? The major work here is "Pacifika Rondo", for a typically Harrisonian combination of far eastern and western instruments, with the emphasis on the percussion section. The music mixes all sorts of styles as it travels around the Pacific rim, and even contemplates The Bomb in a twisted atonal idiom. It's both humorous and disturbing at once. The other instrumental pieces are all attractive essays in Harrison's contemplative vein. Performance and sonic values are quite high. In sum, a worthy addition to this composer's growing discography. May it continue to increase.
