Jakobsen's well-crafted compositions have a strong melodic approach but with enough suggestive segments that invite the Flux members to expand and to draw these compositions to more open, poetic ends……..
"A New Beginning" and "Sunday Morning in Late Winter" have dramatic narratives, its tension is built slowly and both shift between energetic, playful parts to darker, enigmatic segments…….
A promising debut.
You have to respect Thomas Albæk Jakobsen for his courage in doing this demanding project……
It makes demands of every musician. Especially Ole Visby must be praised for his enthusiastic and varied playing on tenor saxophone, clarinet and bass clarinet. Inception pt. 1 is a fine example where he uses clarinet.
Relationships et lytteværdigt album……
En utroligt velspillet og homogen plade med jeres helt egen lyd. Stort tillykke med udgivelsen!
