Along with Jan Garbarek, Tomasz Stanko and, of course, Esbjorn Svensson Trio, Nils Molvaer has been playing Eurojazz trumpet (aka Nordic, Fjordic and Sacndo Jazz) for many years. This is one of his most mature, subtle and haunting albums to date - at least on a par with Khmer, if not better. At last I understand the "Professional" reviewers who talk about "the spaces inbetween" notes. It is so atmospheric that even if you're trying to read while listening - a specific playlist on my ipod - you stop and replay a track because some tonal echo just keeps bouncing around until you do. The nearest sound like it is possibly Tord Gustavvson's new quartet album or Andy Shepard's Moving Images. It bears repeated listenings to fully appreciate its nuances, but each time I think I'm listening to something new. If you like this, try mindblowing new french trio Bleu. Hamada is a great investment.
