The final and somewhat "secret" song is a 12 minute mediation of epic proportions. "Release," comes in three waves. The first, a heavy John Bonham style drum beat over a cavernous synth wash rising and falling with a natural improvisatory jazz feel on the drums. Congo displays his drumming skills but not with out purpose. Many times when life gets challenging music and the drums in particular have been very therapeutic for our society. This is Congo's release after mourning the various societal losses that he has witness as a young man. The drums call the spirits to possess the player, who then possesses the listener into a heightened state of being. Listen to the whole piece and you will feel the energy, the sadness and the anger that come along with these times of life. The second wave gets more violent and begins to rise and fall faster implying eye of the storm or rock bottom point where one realizes the only way out is up. Finishing out the song and album is a flourish of synthesizer sounds and Ginger Baker style drumming. Playing pure feeling and emotion of the moment, Congo's improvisation on drums brings the rhythm of life to the listener and sounds of the album to a close. A truly unique approach to sonic art glorifying a blend of many influences, organic, electronic and everything in between.
