Cal Clugston Revolver 1998

Those readers who were seen heading upstairs to the GALLERY [Palladium Kings Cross] will of course be aware that the fabulous JAVA QUARTET has released a new album. TJQ is one of the most dynamic ensembles to come out of Sydney in years, and this new one, entitled PASSAGES, does them the credit they deserve, although it's a little more reflective than many of their performances. Like a railway line in the outback sun, there's a steady, warm glow eminating from the tracks. Although the album features fine compositions from every member, Michael Galeazzi's track-four contribution, BIG SKY MIND is a clear stand-out. So too, is an emotionally charged composition from pianist Greg Coffin entitled BACH CHORAL, which closes the album in such a way that there's to do but play it all again. All in all, an obvious empathy between these four players produces a gentleness that's still full of energy and ideas.
