The DELTA SAXOPHONE QUARTET, from UK, present "Dedicated to You But You Weren't Listening", an album consisting exclusively of their interpretations of some of Soft Machine's classic compositions, many of which are changed nearly beyond recognition. It is the first time in my life that I've heard music in which there is almost nothing besides four saxophones. I believe this recording is chamber Avant-Jazz and is of a high progressive value, but its sound as such is so strange to me that the music remains beyond my grasp even after three successive listens to the disc. How can I describe what I can't get into? Hence no rating, either.
