This is starting to look like the year of Erik Satie . How else could there be two magnificent albums dedicated to his music? The first was Dan Willis and Velvet Gentlemen's The Satie Project (Daywood Drive Records, 2010), while this rerelease of 1984's classic, The Minimalism of Erik Satie, features Mathias Rüegg's large ensemble tribute to the late-19th/early 20th Century French composer. Both albums are unique: Willis' essentially transposing for reeds and an ensemble slightly larger than a quartet, playing Satie almost as written, but with occasional spiraling cadenzas. Rüegg's Satie goes somewhat further. Most of the music takes off from Satie compositions, then veering off into a dreamy kind of reflection that is both a composition in itself and masterful journey into Satie; a kind of reimagining that Rüegg chose for his brilliant ensemble, the Vienna Art Orchestra. - Raul D'Gama Rose, All About Jazz
