Ten recordings of perplex contemplative moods, perfectly bite-sized in their times, unpretentious and expressive.  Simultaneously acoustic and electronic, percussively tribal, echoing the present into the future.  Both the musicianship and the production are clearly calculated and executed flowingly, without a hint of hesitation.   Jack's Number 100 is 100 percent sound from the soul.  As for Nataraja, we became acquainted back in my college days at UC Berkeley; I have come to believe that the Lord Of The Dance is a good friend to all who welcome the joys of sonic mystery, and Jack is quite obviously spinning in his wake.  I'm not much for "star" ratings,  but without doubt this is well worth a listen.
