Ronin around the world: a powerful and atmospheric concert recording with music captured in Germany, Austria, Holland, England, and Japan, a double-album which transmits the live impact of Nik Bartschs band and its enveloping modular groove music of interlocking rhythms. It s also a set that marks the end of an era and the transition into a new one. These are the last recordings of Ronin with Bjorn Meyer s elegantly-leaping bass guitar as one of the lead voices, and Bartsch views the album as partly a tribute to Meyer s long tenure with the band. New bassist Thomy Jordi, meanwhile, makes an impressive entrance on Modul 55, but it s most often the whole band, as a unified field of force, that commands the listener s attention.
