    What no comments? Seriously this is a duo album and the opener track The Meloncholy of Departure could have been a continuum of Vapor Drawings with the drum machine and synth chords draped in piano and Isham's warm evocative trumpet playing. The album is a cross pollination of acoustic and electronic instrumentation well balanced so not to allow over use of one or the other instrument. Again if any listeners out here enjoy the mood of Vapor Drawings then this will answer that question as to why didnt Mark Isham follow-up the brilliance of Drawings with another album.....this one is satisfying to the ear and mind. Another early ECM gem.
