 Avatar: The Last Airbender - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
New seasons of Avatar begin in spring broadcast season, and are rerun in the summer; new episodes return in the autumn and the season ends in early winter.
Starting with the mastery of his (or as the case may be, her) native element, the Avatar learns to bend all four elements in the order of the cycle, which parallels the seasons: winter for water, spring for earth, summer for fire, and autumn for air.
The Avatar that uses the four elements is Avatar Roku, the Waterbender is Master Pakku, the Earthbender resembles The Boulder, except that his upper body does not match in size, the Firebender is Azula, and the airbender has yet to be identified, although the silhouette suggests that it is an Airbending monk.

 Amazon.com: Avatar: Music: Comets on Fire   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
"Avatar" veers from swinging, bluesy explorations to piano-laced, progressive power balladry to pure tribalism, evoking everyone from the Allmans to Quicksilver to Procol Harem to some insane Fela/Sun Ra/Crazy Horse hybrid, yet remains wholly Comets On Fire.
Don't worry, there's still use of the echoplex, and the songs are drawn from six to eight minutes in length (with one exception), but Comets have traded in some of their feral energy for a more dynamic sound.
The miracle of the album is that through all of the interplay between the instruments sometimes it's just a couple of simple repetitive piano keys to bring it all home.
