Peter Jones It's impossible to pick a favourite from this collection of stunning, free-form virtuoso performances. A great mix, allowing all the players' parts to shine.

What a pity they couldn't continue their common path!
As the formidable Mr MoonJune urges us to listen to the late great Elton Dean, blackmailing by offering this for one lousy buck, we should oblige, but please give a little more ;-)
Fans of Soft Machine / Soft Machine Legacy can't be disappointed by this bold statement! Favorite track: Baker's Treat.

A sizzling session recorded live in Paris in October of 2005 (less than four months before Elton Dean's untimely passing), The Unbelievable Truth demonstrates the remarkable breadth of the late British saxophonist's reach. The repertoire highlights the range of his compositional skills, as well as The Wrong Object's equally-diverse writing and freewheeling improvisational abilities. From quirky Zappa-esque complexity to ominous material reminiscent of Dean's 1970s tenure with Soft Machine (and even a hint of swing), The Unbelievable Truth documents how Dean remained a vital musical force to the very end.This disc features some fine playing by all, as the group performs some of their brilliant, quirky originals -- as well as rendering versions of some of Elton's best-loved tunes. Included are Elton Dean's old signature piece "Seven For Lee", the classic "Basho" (from what many consider his finest album, 1980's Boundaries), and the more recent "Baker's Treat". This is an incredibly fresh, vibrant performance, and one of Elton Dean's very last.A classic, timeless performance by a true progressive music legend; a deep communication between some great musicians.
