Ivo Perelman: The Children of Ibeji

Album Reviews:

Down Beat (11/92, p.53) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good Plus - "...plunges headlong into the maelstrom of the '60s avant garde....he heads straight for the cosmos, skronking up a storm....Perelman's buzz-saw brashness is like a breath of spring..."

Option (Nov.-Dec./92, p.136) - "...Brazilian music meets American jazz on a refreshingly different plane....Tough, essential stuff..."

Musician (11/92, p.106) - "...a record that works much better at top volume, where braying is sometimes its own reward, and where pop chants like `Tom's Diner' transcend novelty value..."

Reflex (12/92, p.72) - "...Not since Gato Barbieri slipped away from his CHAPTER 1 phase has a South American saxophonist so effectively combined throaty tenor textures, rich ethnic melodies, and inventive--often wild-- improvisations..."
