Though autumn in the Bay Area doesn't have same charms as, say, autumn in New England, that lovely scent of dead leaves and smoke still fills the air, and light becomes more distilled, sharper. While Nobukazu Takemura's "Icefall" from the Scope LP might be an attempt to evoke wintery landscapes, there is something about the piece that screams autumn to me. It is perhaps the two-chord pulse that begins and then runs throughout the track, its lifting appeal. Who knows. But no matter the reason, "Icefall" is one of those pieces that I cannot stop listening to, perfect in every way.

Nobukazu Takemura- Icefall

Dancing again, later today.
