"I hate drum solos. So I'm pleased to report that German improvisational percussionist Sommer's lastest solo album sounds like many things, but never a drum solo. He often plays melodically, favoring tuned concert toms; sometimes he sings along. The emphasis is on texture and timbre as much as rhythm. Before the sound of drums can become monotonous, Sommer has switched to gongs, tubular bells, darabuka, hammered dulcimer, or non-percussive instruments like harmonica, shawm, and bandoneon. He isn't afraid of silence, and shows no sign of tehcnical display for its own sake. Many years of this kind of solo playing have developed into a quiet mastery."-Mark Sullivan, Option, Los Angeles, USA, 55/1994
