This review is from: Skalpel (Audio CD)
Listening to this record is like getting covered in musical dust and spending the night in some wonderfully smokey Polish bier cellar.
This is stylish and effortlessly orchestrated and you would be forgiven for thinking that the boys behind it probably had a lot more in them, but were just 'too damn cool' to put the heat on anymore than they did. This is easily the most under-rated nu-jazz album of today and it stands modestly, but triumphantly next to its piers. The tracks are varied, but retain an organised consistency that permeates throughout the bands skill to remain tight yet innovative.
The standout track is 'Sculpture', which gently unravels into a tinkly stoned-out, sunny day. Perfect for summer mornings when the windows are open and the coffee pot is on. But also very special for those quiet, reflective smoked-out evenings when the special whiskey has been cracked open. I only hope I can hold out until these guys tour or make another album. I wait, I hope and I pray.
