Descansos, Past
Jim Fox
2005 Cold Blue Music CB0021 (CD)

"Jim Fox's DESCANSOS, PAST inhabits the same haunted soundscape as his 2004 release, THE CITY THE WIND SWEPT AWAY -- the unconventional scoring (pizzicato bass and nine bowed cellos) produces a sort of lush bleakness that evokes the windswept open spaces of the American West. Perhaps Descansos evokes the strange roadside memorials that gave Fox his title, but to these Eastern ears, it is reminiscent of the brooding lyricism of England's Gavin Bryars. This is a music that seems to linger even after the recording itself has ended." -- John Schaefer, WNYC, New Sounds "Fox achieves an impressive balance between delicate and troubled." -- All-Music Guide "Fox usually works with quiet, beautifully ominous... slow-creeping tonalities... emotions from quiet grief to indefinable hope." -- Misfit City (UK)
