Steve Tibbetts plays everything on this album but the percussions, which are handled by his long-time collab Marc Anderson. Although I suppose that at the time Tibbetts' music served a purpose and was maybe groundbreaking (I only became aware of him in the early 90's), I can assure you that this album is nothing worth writing about than I will here. Ambient, new-agey, repetitive, almost boring. Not really recommended if you like dynamic and changing music. Far more daring than his earlier works, "Northern Songs", is less Jazz/Fusion (thank the Gods) and more "Ambiental" to call it somehow. His compositions and performance, open up a new stage of direction, and the result as such, is not a "Jazz/Fusion" follower's dream.

With Nothern Song, Steve Tibbetts made his ECM debut and introduced listeners to what remains one of the label’s most enchanting, if slowly unfolding, maps. The cover seems to tell us everything: silhouettes of islands superimposed on the journey that takes us to them, as if the dream of arrival were potent enough to burn itself across the rearview mirror of our lives. Tibbetts lavishes his instruments with respect, strumming them as he might harps of glacial light. This album is an ocean, and we the birds who range its waters. Tracklist: 1. The Big Wind 08:17 2. Form 07:18 3. Walking 06:28 4. Aerial View 04:14 5. Nine Doors, Breathing Space 21:56.
