Peter Apfelbaum And The Hieroglyphics Ensemble ‎– Jodoji Brightness. Label: Antilles ‎– 314512320-2, Antilles ‎– 743211205023.

On its second album, saxophonist Peter Apfelbaum's worldbeat big band slips a bit from the tightrope it had walked successfully on its debut, teetering away from the genuinely attractive global jazz-fusion of the first album and toward the self-indulgent and overly impressionistic exoticism that lesser bands have already explored fully. In other words, as interesting as most of these compositions are in theory (highlife morphs into reggae segues into mbaqanga, all with brainy horn charts), they tend to be pretty tedious in practice.

Apfelbaum was playing in the Bay Area a lot when I lived in SF in the '90s, so I was lucky to see both the Heiroglyphics and the Pagan Love Orchestra, Jai Utal's outfit, wherein Apfelbaum played drums. When I realized it was the same guy-playing amazing sax and writing gorgeous tunes in the Heiros, and cooking on the kit in the Pagan Loves-my head exploded with joy. Everything Apfelbaum does is excellent, but I've always loved this album best. The Hand that Signed the Paper" is a masterpiece.

Peter Apfelbaum (born August 21, 1960) is an American avant-garde jazz pianist, tenor saxophonist, drummer and composer born in Berkeley, California. He first emerged on the jazz scene in the late 1970s, performing with Carla Bley from 1978–1982 and touring with Warren Smith and Karl Berger.

In 1991 his album Signs of Life, recorded with The Hieroglyphics Ensemble, went to No. 14 on Billboard's "top contemporary jazz albums.
