Ed Alleyne-Johnson

A while back I touted the greatness of Ed Alleyne-Johnson, and promised a
review.  Unfortunately I've not had time to listen to it recently so I

counterpoint/rhythm/percussive stuff on solo violin and pedalboard, with
some arabic and Hendrixian influences.  I don't know who to send this to -
if everyone can sort it out, decide among yourselves and let me know.  I
really only have time to make one copy, though.  Maybe a tape tree would

The album contains a lot of structured, non-improvised loops - is this what
we need "beyond Fripp"?  Structure, rather than improv?
