Trip to the Sun

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
Tracy Silverman, violinist of the jazz-fusion Turtle Island String Quartet, flies solo with this gutsy album. He plays acoustic violin, MIDI violin, six-string electric violin, and six-string viola, plus he mans keyboards and computers. Guest artists add interesting sonic dimensions. Flautist Thea Suits softens the blues-flavored "Here Comes the Sun" by George Harrison, while Minimalist composer Terry Riley plays muted piano on two improvisations: the hypnotic "Moonshine in the Sun" and the sublime "Darshan." Silverman's electric violin wails and rails on Jimi Hendrix's "1983...A Merman I Should Turn to Be." Gershwin gets his due on "Prelude," in which the blues ...

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
Tracy Silverman, violinist of the jazz-fusion Turtle Island String Quartet, flies solo with this gutsy album. He plays acoustic violin, MIDI violin, six-string electric violin, and six-string viola, plus he mans keyboards and computers. Guest artists add interesting sonic dimensions. Flautist Thea Suits softens the blues-flavored "Here Comes the Sun" by George Harrison, while Minimalist composer Terry Riley plays muted piano on two improvisations: the hypnotic "Moonshine in the Sun" and the sublime "Darshan." Silverman's electric violin wails and rails on Jimi Hendrix's "1983...A Merman I Should Turn to Be." Gershwin gets his due on "Prelude," in which the blues atmosphere is so heady, you feel you're basking in the city's neon glow. "Fugue en Groove" is a fanciful tangle of themes backed by a funky dance groove, while the Largo from one of Bach's unaccompanied violin sonatas played here on viola and keyboard drone is given a haunting framework that lingers on the skin. Most ambitious is Silverman's own "Riff in 11/8" from his violin concerto. Fun as it is to count off the beats, the music explodes with joyous chaos, like catching butterflies in your bare hands. Bassoon, flute, percussion, and fretless bass Michael Manring dish rhythmic lines to each other, creating pulsing sonic moiré patterns. Whether you approach this album with the ears attuned to rock, avant-garde, classical, or jazz, you'll be well rewarded.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Tracy Scott Silverman's debut for Windham Hill, Trip to the Sun, features more of his six-string violin and a blend of pop, rock, and classical styles. The former Turtle Island String Quartet violinist plays songs like "Here Comes the Sun," "Fugue en Groove," "Improvisation with Overdubs," and "Moonshine in the Sun," lending the album a distinctive yet timeless feel.
