Beautifully relaxed, timeless music
on 19 February 2016
This Art Farmer quartet CD attains a quiet perfection - with Jim Hall, Pete LaRoca and Steve Swallow as collaborators, how could it not. The material is derived from Swedish folk repertoire, and features as main soloists Farmer's burnished tone on flugelhorn and Hall's exquisitely mellow guitar. The rhythm duo provide empathetic support. Chamber jazz - not at all - it's just superb music by a quartet in sync with the material and each other, that always sounds right...and at the current price of around £3 for the Japanese issue, represents top value.
