New Spirojazz album ventures into "Space and Alienation"
(Published: September 25, 2014)

Spirojazz's Space and Alienation has the exotic familiarity of a favorite Persian rug. At one point, it almost suggests Miriam Makeba's "A Luta Continua" with an outer space context.

The first track, "Apollo Landing," begins with a hopeful, progressive beat before the lonely atmospherics of synthesized flute and background voices illustrate the passing of time and distance. Orbiting around the moon makes one imagine being near a lovely presence yet unable to reach it.

The cleanliness in these tracks recall Giorgio Moroder and the electronic pioneering of the disco era. "Mary (And Love's Lost)" reminds one of Louis Armstrong with his sad trumpet and hoarse voice, personified by the percussion and distant piano. It's like we are all here yet will not acknowledge each other, preferring instead to live inside-out shells like slugs.

By "Michael," one is used to the detached feel. "Passing Through" is remarkable in its shortness and dirge-like sadness. There is still a tempo to it that resounds with hope, like Nana Mouskouri and the Athenians; you feel like the show has a life beyond the performer and at times that life ends in one plane and starts in another. This is almost an introduction to the exciting "Alien Abduction 3001" track just following. Gone from one world to the other; fret not, it is way better in the latter than the former. It reminds the music lover to enjoy all parts as life as a package.
