Archives: The Survivors‘ Suite

„It is a personal requirement that I listen to this recording at least once a month. This music takes me to places I have never been before and I always return with a refreshed point of view. Jarratt & company explore the full range of human emotions on this beautiful masterpiece. From a soft and tender relaxing vibe to a full blown controlled rage, this music parallels the experience of life – its’ups and downs and ebbs and flows. It is something to experience often. The long winding suite starts out slow, builds to a boil and then mellows out before exploding into what can only be described as an emotional storm. When the music final ends, you have been through an emotional roller-coaster. I have over 25 Jarratt recordings in my collection and each one offers a diverse and unique listening experience, but this one goes to the proverbial desert island with me along with Miles Davis‘ „Kind of Blue. This recording is appropriately titled „Survivors Suite,“ because if you „get it“ you will be completely exhaused after you „survive it“ – but you will have a big smile on your face when you finish.“ (A. Davis)
