Richie Unterberger Liner Notes

For their third–and certainly best–record the classically inspired New York Rock And Roll Ensemble recruited Greek composer and songwriter Manos Hadjidakis. The resulting REFLECTIONS plays like a film score–not surprisingly, given Hadjidakis’s experience as a composer of just such works–with epic instrumental sweeps and passages of quiet melancholy. Many of the tracks, such as “Orpheus,” “The Day,” and “Kemal,” incorporate the folk melodies of Hadjidakis’s homeland while maintaining a baroque psychedelic touch.
