David Torn - Cloud About Mercury (1987)
Experimental fusion from guitarist David Torn. Torn always reminds me of Steve Tibbetts, and it's not just their penchant for tribal drumming and other 'exotic' forms of instrumentation; they're both undeniably dexterous players who nonetheless emphasize texture and atmosphere over chops. One of his most satisfying solo records, What Means Solid, Traveller? starts in a gnarled, dissonant place, and ends in ethereal, ambient nirvana.
