Sacred System, Chapter 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
On Sacred System: Chapter Two, bassist and producer extraordinaire Bill Laswell makes good on the partly unfulfilled promise of 1996's Sacred System Chapter One: Book of Entrance.

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
On Sacred System: Chapter Two, bassist and producer extraordinaire Bill Laswell makes good on the partly unfulfilled promise of 1996's Sacred System Chapter One: Book of Entrance. The difference, in this case, is a small ensemble of guest musicians who include Material guitarist Nicky Skopelitis, a tabla virtuoso named Bill Buchen, and jazz cornettist Graham Haynes son of legendary bop drummer Roy Haynes. Whereas Chapter One was a rather arid solo project, Chapter Two comes completely to life with the various contributions of its ensemble players: Skopelitis mostly lays back and contributes lovely textures, while Haynes defines cavernous aural spaces with his echoey, jazzy horn lines and Buchen delivers almost impossibly intricate percussion figures.

This is a deeply satisfying compilation of groove music from one of groove's greatest living exponents.
