Product Description:

This is the CD debut of David Axelrod's SONGS OF EXPERIENCE. "Poison Tree," "London," and "Human Abstract" are among the songs.
The follow-up to David Axelrod's 1968 solo debut, SONG OF INNOCENCE, finds the adventurous Los Angeles-based composer and producer once again riffing on the visionary poetry of William Blake, this time working from the British bard's SONGS OF EXPERIENCE. Appropriately, these eight pieces reflect the writings' weightier themes, as "The Poison Tree" begins the album with a striking sense of urgency generated by busy string and keyboard lines. "London" settles into a slightly foreboding funk section, while "The Sick Rose" is utterly haunting in its relative minimalism. An artist that had fully mastered his sonic palette by this point, Axelrod allows his signature fusion of rock and jazz to mesh with bold orchestral arrangements, hitting a swirling, horn-laden peak during "The Fly." One of the finest examples of Axelrod's singular talent, this record continued a strange, brooding trajectory that would land him in the darkly beautiful and fascinatingly bizarre realm of his subsequent project, EARTH ROT.
