this album of fusion-styled material, Higgs Boson shows a sound
command of both form and orchestration in his chosen idiom, and
applies his know-how with imagination. In this respect the opening
track is a stand-out, others tending to offer less demanding listening
and one or two veering towards New Age music.
This is not intrinsically soloists' music, much of it depending
on through-composed development, but there are diverting contributions
from guitarists Scirocco and Claridge, saxophonist Rob Townsend
(known for his association with Django Bates) and Boson himself.
Higgs Boson, as you may already have guessed, is indeed a nom-de-guerre
drawn from the sub-atomic particle of the same name.
