David Darling’s inspired contribution to Ralph Towner’s Old Friends, New Friends in June 1979 led to the scheduling of this solo cello album four months later. An exploration of atmospheres and textures, with imaginative use of overdubbing to create rich waves of string sound, Journal October was an influential recording. Its poetic, evocative character was particularly welcomed by filmmakers including Jean-Luc Godard, who subsequently incorporated music by Darling in his Nouvelle Vague and Histoire(s) du Cinéma projects.Although not strictly a jazz album, David Darling’s 1979 solo release, Journal October, deserves attention. His technique is amazing, even if a lot of times he’s more interested in colors and textures than in rhythms. He’s certainly influenced by contemporary classical music, and at times things get so introspective he almost seems detached. But it’s worth investigating, for Darling is capable of exciting statements. This has been reissued on CD. – Ron Wynn
