4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

With THE RISE & FALL OF THE THIRD STREAM, Zawinul draws equally from European classical music and from the gospel and blues roots of jazz, achieving a virtually perfect balance of the cerebral and the earthy. The instrumentation is unique, as the keyboard/horns/bass/drums band is joined by a string quartet oddly capable of conveying a strong blues feeling. Jimmy Owens contributes sterling trumpet work, and William Fischer (better known as a "classical" composer) plays stark, probing tenor saxophone. If you appreciate both classical music and the blues, the excellent RISE & FALL is for you.
