Release number 22 but first one on his own label, as the title suggests this one moves into the electronic world and also mixes vocals well to the fore and it's rather splendid. My pick is Te (beyond words) but it's a good all round CD that sees him in a musically adventurous vein that's to be applauded and an apt reminder of his groundbreaking electric work with the harp many years ago. Very good. Graham Radley
