Golden Valley Is Now

Craig Taborn is a revelation. Again. But beautiful what he does here, all naked in some very simple melody lines. The Anderson and the King tunes are very poignant (if you desire an adjective). More to the point in terms of effect they are utterly compelling. Think Kraftwerk, think song: delete that don’t even think – once read just forget the four words in this sentence before the colon. Bask instead, rely on your gut feeling, yep pun intended, in the tunes. Nostalgia as nostalgia unravelling sums up the whole thing. SG
