Reissue with the latest 24-bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Fast and funky fusion from David Matthews – building off the sound of his later Kudu recordings with a sweet electric groove! The album's got a pretty full approach overall – with Matthews on electric piano, and directing a large group of players that includes Mike Maineri, Michael Brecker, Jon Faddis, Shunzo Ohno, and Ronnie Cuber – and a number of tracks feature a vocal chorus that includes Ullanda McCullough and Yvonne Lewis. The overall style is slick, but not in a bad way – and Matthews more than meets the Japanese fusion sound head to head for this non-US release from the time!
Reissue with the latest 24-bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. One of the best Jazz Fusion albums ever produced…..and Eric Gale on guitar is a wonderful contributor. Recording is similar in sound and vibe to Eric Gale's other Jazz/Fusion records. If you like "In a Jazz Tradition" or "In the Shade of a Tree" you'll like this.

The Secret Language of Birds (2000) is the third studio album by Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson. It is named after the dawn chorus, the natural sound of birds heard at dawn, most noticeably in the spring.
"The Secret Language of Birds" is the third studio album by Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson. It is named after the dawn chorus, the natural sound of birds heard at dawn, most noticeably in the spring. The album is extremely impressive and great for anyone who likes soft but not slow and boring folk music. "The Secret Language of Birds" can be easily ranked among Anderson's best work, Tull or otherwise, and in many ways is the most impressive release of his career.
Hoelderlin were a German band who started out firmly with a prog-folk styling, but by their 3rd release (Clowns and Clouds) gave in to a more symphonic-prog direction (some could say that they took the easy way out by changing to this style). 'Rare Birds' is their 4th release and really hits this prog listener somewhere deep inside. The main keyboard utilised on this LP is a string synth, and IMO, it is used to great effect and compliments the arrangements perfectly (i.e. - it wouldn't sound the same with a mellotron, believe it or not !). The production is quite clear and well balanced - very professional.
