Such beautiful, soulful jazz.
The music here is superbly composed, with compositions that ebb and flow as naturally as the flowing of water, which lends a reflective, elegiac feel to the entire album.
What is particularly impressive is the intuitive feel between all players, with the saxophonists, Julien Wilson and Carl Mackey being especially good throughout.
