Once a student of Terry Riley, the sadly departed Joanna Brouk excelled at making effortlessly atmospheric and intensely beautiful music that sat somewhere between ambient, new age and hypnotic American Minimalism pioneered by her college mentor. Many of her albums have previously been hard to come by, so it's fantastic to see "The Space Between", arguably her single finest set, finally get reissued. It's thoroughly magical: a wonderful mixture of twinkling piano lines, exotic Indian instrumentation, chiming melodies and just the right amount of reverb. The epic A-side title track is the standout, though the shorter pieces on the flip are also rather lovely.
