Notes & Reviews:

"...Terry Riley's music, at least on this CD, sounds more like jazz than minimalist pounding...All in all, this is not at all easy to play, but it is very easy to listen to, and cerebrally stimulating...If you know and like the Adams of Harmonium and perhaps the Beethoven of the last piano sonata, then this recording is for you...Good stuff!" -Tuttle, Fanfare
