"Borrowing the name of his original solo album Song Cycle — a pioneering cerebral set released in 1968 ... this new set, released on the habitually tasteful Bella Union label, conveniently collects and offers up the series of 45s that Parks released in 2011-2012 in a solitary setting. It's good stuff, creatively arranged and oozing with intellect, and like much of his post-Song Cycle solo work combines eclecticism, exoticism, Americana, and if you listen hard enough, maybe a Trinidad steel drum band or two. Hugely creative, and, at age 70, still something of a mystery, Parks is one very fascinating artist." — Dave DiMartino, New This Week
