  1. I often feel that Baumann was the musical heart and soul of TD. His use of melody is what I missed most on his departure. Romance 76 and Trans Harmonic Nights illustrate beautifully what he brought to the TD table.

    I am rather looking forward to this release.

    1. Have to agree with you. Would have been nice if he had played with the TD Sorcerer concert in Europe last year (or two?)

  2. Some of what I hear is too sugar coated and will appeal to the masses. Nothing wrong with that, but not what I call real music. Other tracks are surprising and fresh. Promises to be an interesting album. Fortunately we have Itunes, so each can pick its own favorite tracks and leave those who appeal less. Can’t argue about taste.
    So far I like dust to dust best.
