"Sometimes dark, sometimes quietly celebratory, the music on this CD is as straightforward as it is haunting and evocative. This disc, featuring new-music clarinetist Marty Walker, brings together Alaskan composer John Luther Adams' Dark Wind, a work for bass clarinet, mallet percussion, and piano penned in 2001, with three quintets for clarinet/bass clarinet and string quartet written in the early '90s by Los Angeles composers Rick Cox, Michael Jon Fink, and Jim Fox. All of these pieces -- distinct in their own voices, yet united in their muted intensities and sensuous surfaces -- inhabit a musical space that's just slightly (and interestingly) apart from most of today's prominent 'isms,' yet undeniably a part of the greater contemporary musical landscape."
