Things Behind the Sun
JD's 5th, and most extraordinary, recording brings yet another shift in his musical vision. While maintaining many of the 'minimalist' elements of 'Brief Light,' the tuned percussion ostinatas, and multiple interlocking guitar parts, 'Things Behind The Sun' offers a much jazzier element than any of his CDs. Featuring Tony Levin and Vinny Sabatino, 'Things Behind The Sun' is Durant's most guitaristic recording to date, offering glimpses of chordal work never before heard on JDs records. In many pieces the customary cloud guitars have been replaced with layered voicings across intricate chord progressions that bring to mind such diverse influences as Eberhard Weber and Allan Holdsworth.
