Kopinski's first solo album featuring his most personal work at this time.Most of the compositions are music to film or visual imagery and there is a slow, haunting melancholy throughout the album. Combining a slow-burn rhythm section with family members, Stefan bass and programmes, Janina,viola and Steve Iliffe (Pinski Zoo partner),the moody melodic landscape is inspired by Eastern Europe, film and jazz. Jazz moves from funk to lament.

At the original stoke Newington Jazz Café in the late eighties, an eccentric Nottingham free-funk band mixed infectious dance-floor beats with keyboard electronics and a saxophone sound that suggested Albert Ayler more than it did Ronnie Laws. This was Pinski Zoo, led by saxophonist Jan Kopinski, and it deserved mega-stardom because it not only funked your socks off but foresaw future developments in jazz fusion. But its members were diverted by other lives and its good to know that Kopinski and his keyboard partner Steve Iliffe are still creatively active. The music mostly takes Kopinski's ghostly Ayler-like sound at a trance-like walk, and at times it sounds like Headhunters meets free-improvisation. Terrific. JOHN FORDHAM (May 98)
