Eric Mertens — White Worker
(Carbon 7 C7-050, 2000, CD)

White Worker Cover art

White Worker is Eric Mertens’ latest release and a follow up to his first CD Spleen. White Worker is a wonderful collection of 11 contemporary chamber music compositions wherein Eric is joined by a large cast of supporting musicians on a variety of strings, brass, and woodwinds. Beautiful melodies interweave in a tapestry of serious and sometimes comical threads. I am reminded of bands as diverse as Sensations Fix, Weather Report, Henry Cow, and Alan Parsons Project. Finely crafted, this is an excellent CD to relax to after a stressful day. Highly recommended.
