''I sometimes hear a fiddle play or maybe it's a notion. I dream I see white horses dance upon that other ocean''
– Ralph McTell, 'From Clare to Here'
The event release of Sounding Point attempts the impossible and succeeds. Long time avant jazz fans will need no reminding that violinist Mark Feldman is one of the greatest. Solo violin is no small undertaking even for a player of his rare calibre. Performing mainly his own work plus pieces by Sylvie Courvoisier, his pianist wife and labelmate, and by Ornette Coleman, this latest collection was recorded in a Brooklyn studio last spring and is released by Intakt on Friday.
