Release Date: 1996 [2007]

By John Kelman

Sometimes people become misrepresented early on. Sean Malone first came to attention as the bassist for death/technical metal band Cynic, but has since garnered more notice for his versatile playing with his fusion/progressive group Gordian Knot. That Malone—who also plays the tapped stick—recorded Cortlandt in 1996, not long after Cynic's Focus (Roadrunner, 1993), makes it even more remarkable. Originally a limited release on Audioimage, it's become something of a cult record—and for good reason. This welcome reissue finally brings it into wider release and includes a bonus track that says plenty about Malone's reach—Pat Metheny's "Unquity Road."
