This track is both highly enjoyable and technically remarkable. Alone in the studio with his instruments and a tape recorder, Russian horn virtuoso Arkady Shilkloper takes us on a colorful ride through his imaginary mountains. It starts out funky with a very urban overdubbed horn choir, next some kind of mountain shepherd's call summons us out to the countryside, then comes a two-horn call and response. It's physically challenging and downright funny from beginning to end. A must!
