Considered by the duo as their strongest release, Ex-Wise Heads' Celestial Disclosure provided a superb showcase for the band's unique fusion of jazz, electronica and world music.
Originally released in 2007 on Tonefloat's C imprint in a vinyl edition limited to 300 copies, the album's two extended cuts saw former Henry Cow member Geoff Leigh's flexible sax lines and passionate flute solos merging effortlessly with Porcupine Tree bassist Colin Edwin's infectiously groove-based polyrhythmic bass patterns.
Drawing from melodic Western and enigmatic Eastern scales alike, the resulting music hynotically explored the creative middle ground between fearless improvisation and structured composition.
For the record's re-release on CD, the band has added a bonus track culled from the same sessions. Featuring the talents of Indian-born acoustic guitarist Rajan Spolia, who already featured on previous Ex-Wise Heads work Liquid Assets, the inclusion of this epic atmospheric track organically complements and enriches an already powerful statement.
Celestial Disclosure comes in a high-quality japanese style vinyl miniature cardboard sleeve.
