Django Bates: Winter Truce (And Homes Blaze)

Chris May By

Sign in to view read count
Ten years on from its original release, digitally remastered in a handsome Winter & Winter edition, Winter Truce (And Homes Blaze) isn't so much a candidate for re-evaluation as potent testimony to the controversy that surrounded maverick British bandleader and composer Django Bates in '95. The unfettered idiosyncrasy of the album—overflowing with new ideas and previously uncharted vistas—sums up much,

and the parts themselves continue to make for enthralling listening.
