    Don't believe the canon. Right now with the amount of internet information that has gone to trash there is very little written about Compresed Light and the little accessible is the John Bush bashing review of the album, as he did have a target on a specific blend of jazz and electronica that was featured here, the Atjazz debut or in the Kirk Degiorgio's Offworld albums. They are all similar experiments that try to update that fusion jazz so common in Azymuth or other 80s bands (and Japanese examples). This one is a bit more prog rock but still worth of a listen and getting lost in its thick textures.

      i was drawn in to this album when i heard the first song, 'million miles.' it contains samples from the track 'azimuth' by john taylor's group azimuth on their self-titled debut from 1977. it was always my favorite song on that azimuth LP, and it's nice that someone used it in a more modern setting. the whole p'taah album is enjoyable, and much more "jazzy" than any of the later releases. i wish chris brann had stayed with this style.

        COMPRESSED LIGHT is a beautiful album -- jazz that's forward-thinking and startlingly complex. P'Taah (a.k.a. Chris Brann) craft tracks that continually morph, going one way, then another, without taking an easy ways out. You can sense a bit of a Latin influence, sometimes in percussion, other times squarely on its sleeve. But, without a doubt, the music stands repeated listens. Of particular interest: the blissful beauty of "Flying High." A wonderful new direction for the usually house-oriented Mr. Brann.
