Acid Trip (At the Jazz Club)
Lars L. Lien
A work of art yet again from Lien, while different from 'The Other Side' (2015).
'Acid Trip (at the Jazz Club)' is a work of some magnitude. 'High Definition' is a minimalist jazz piece that sets the stage; and 'No 1 of the Five' is, as the title suggests, inspired by Russian folk music, and like 'Open Wide' is at the same time rather challenging and then again not. 'Conscience,' performed on pipe organ, is an instrumental 'koral' of a very high standard, inspired by Bach's prelude (BWV 543) and the concluding part of his BWV 565.
