Well, if it's an April Fool, then I'm an April Fool. I'm quite enjoying it, cans on, last bit of work before Easter, nice view out the window. I like the Orchestration and the hint at a bit of electronica and the way it builds.

It kind of reminds me of this, which is very different, but a great listen. The repeated phrase in the above is similar to below. Dave Sanborn plays some stunning stuff.

lol ,David, I don't THINK it's an April Fool post, but if it is, I've been had too ;-)
give it a listen, movement 6 is nice with the LSO strings more prominent.

mixed reviews:-

"The more I listen to this record the deeper and more alchemic the emotional reactions it provokes. The word masterpiece has been floated in the press and I think that's appropriate. Promises feels like a continuation of John Coltrane's spiritual and emotional legacy--a pupil of his lifting his heart and placing it firmly within the digital body. Sanders is peerless here. Bravo."

"This is what happens when you bring 3 disparate legends together. A synergy that transcends."

"reactivates dusty neural pathways. movement 6 opens the floodgates: bliss, rage, gratitude and sorrow simultaneously. a lifetime fave/touchstone!"

"I managed to bear 2 minutes of it. Sounded like the first time I took a sax out of its case and tried to play it."

And what would you add to the mix, Andy? :)
