Right up there with Life Time as one of my favorite avant-jazz albums, Don Cherry's Complete Communion is another "must hear" for anyone who considers themselves a fan of strange and difficult music. The arrangements and musicianship on Complete Communion defy logic, motifs come and go, hooks and grooves are alluded to, return, shift, and twist into other ideas and forms. At times their is a feeling of improvisation but then the order is revealed in another head-scratching turn. Trying to describe Complete Communion to someone who hasn't heard it is kind of like taking a class in how to be in a car accident. I will shut up now, and let the music do the talking, and it does a lot of talking.
