Terry Bozzio's latest effort might surprise those who are only familiar with his most popular works. In fact, this CD lives true to its name "Chamber Works"... it contains five movements and a closing opus. Together with Dutch Metropole Orkest, Bozzio showcases phenomenal musicianship that shouldn't leave anyone cold. Bozzio also consulted Martin Fondse on orchestrating the material.
Various moods are covered within the music - at times listening may be soothing, while tension also tends to build up occasionally. Dramatic changes take place when least expected, and I can guarantee that one discovers new sides of the music with ensuing listens. Towards the end of the record the material progresses, and darker tones are introduced. Especially these gloomier soundscapes appealed to me.
Chamber Works was recorded at MCO Studio 3, Hilversum, Holland in October 2003. With the help of engineer Frank Mathijssen and balance engineer Hugh den Ouden, Terry Bozzio made sure the sounds are precise. Peter Vincent, on the other hand, handled the mastering.
There's no question about it - Chamber Works is a phenomenal recording that showcases one of today's most gifted drummers. It's simply a must-have record for every music fan.
