P'taah Staring at the Sun
- Words: Tony Ware
- Label: Ubiquity
P'taah is producer Chris Brann's collective, often dubbed "nu jazz," but informed by a deeply ingrained tradition. On the one hand Brann respects tradition, composing soulful house as Ananda Project adhering to 120 BPM, double the heartbeat and intrinsically inspiring. But with P'taah, he seeks to break his own mold, while still following a lineage of compositional clarity that links Erik Satie to funk-jazz fusion to Norwegian experimental expansions. P'taah's earliest output was expressive but felt more encumbered by its agenda. Staring at the Sun is a more accomplished yet unfettered filter of the universal frequencies Brann's P'taah debut Compressed Light let shine.
