Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]

All Those Born With Wings is a solo album by Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek, released on the ECM label in 1987. On this recording Garbarek can be heard playing all the instruments, including keyboards, percussion, sampled guitar and voice in addition to multitracked saxophone. The third piece is dedicated to the film director Andrey Tarkovsky


Allmusic awarded the album with 3 stars and its review by Mark W. B. Allender states: "On the hip with most of Garbarek's recordings, this one is airy and spacy — belting out screaming sax lines. The five pieces here — serially titled — tend to blend together, giving the impression of one long song".[2]
