ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Every now and again, an individual comes along with a new and improved idea to keep the genre of jazz fresh and to the point. Meet Neil Leonard ... who takes music of his own design and carries it beyond the realm of normal creativity. Leonard uses 'Timaeus' to extend the limits of the alto, soprano and tenor saxophone to a level often sought by Ornette Coleman."
Sheldon Nunn, Jazz Review

"The real genius of Leonard's music comes from the insanely great structures he builds, impossibly complex and rich constructions, which build and build, eventually gracefully falling around your ears ... the results point to an artist worth keeping an eye on. This is music that can be listened to endlessly, with fresh detail emerging on each occasion."
Ben Kettlewell, Alternate Music Press

"New music and jazz flow from Neil Leonard's creative imagination. In the same way that 'Rhapsody in Blue' pioneered a blend, Leonard's compositions mix a little swing with a wide variety of different effects. Sci-fi films are loaded with these unusual sounds. However, it's Leonard's alto saxophone that provides substance. He expresses soulful ballads and provides gutsy improvisation. Accompanying him, without overdubbing, are the electronic sounds that wait at his beck and call for their cues ... 'Timaeus' breathes fresh ideas into today's scene."
By Jim Santella, All About Jazz

"After listening to 'Timeaus' … one really gets the feeling that human perceptions, the body and the soul are linked to larger universal structures. It is very important because interactive jazz improvisation (still the rare breed, started by a few brave musicians like Anthony Braxton and George Lewis) gets to the core: improvisation represents the most direct manifestation of human nature while computer represents the universal structures. The dialogue between the two becomes possible through jazz."
Dmitri Ukhov, Salon AV

"[Among] the best American Electronic music composers"
