Movement 6 is the best microcosm.
1 minute of PS, followed by 6 minutes of FP noodle orchestral writing that is just not compelling. Too busy to be ambient music, too flat and rote to be stirring. He uses the orchestra like a monophonic instrument almost, to play these melodramatic cliches..
If the album didn’t have access to Pharoah I might not judge the long FP orchestral sessions so harshly but it’s like, you’ve got a brilliant soloist and (orchestrally) a novice accompaniest, lean into your strengths.
