Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2018-03-01 
Lush gorgeous evocative listenable experimental along the lines of John Hassel/Brian Eno, David Byrne, looping like Steve Reich and Phillip Glass, engaging, cinematic. Like Hassel, Byrne, this stuff takes on a serene primal, world, tribal feel, like the origins of music distilled. Play with/also check out Hassel/Eno collaboration “Possible Musics” and the epic Byrne/Eno “My Life in the Bush of Ghosts”.

I wrote the above before realizing this is a re-release of Horowitz’ first debut record from 1981, and at the time he was indeed working with John Hassel. Horowitz is a heavy hitter now: 40 years’ experience working in jazz and Hollywood film scores, collaborating with the likes of Anthony Braxton and, of course, John Hassel.

1) (4:55) pretty looping airy with breathy Hassel’esque woodwind/flute 2) (5:17) tribal looping drums, quite pleasant with flutes and other winds 3)* (4:43) very tribal, African veldt feel, almost kalima’like, called “Baby Elephant Magic” and the music indeed evokes such an image 4)* (3:31) treated vocal chantings, looped and layered with tribal drums 5) (3:27) very metallic overall, mildly melodic, certainly hypnotic 6) (3:34) looping player piano composition, an ode to the master of the player piano, Nancarro 7) (3:28) pretty almost toy like pianos 8)* (21:46) “Elephant Dance”: wow epic spacey trippy dripping, east meets west loveliness
