What I like about it: I like how the lovely melodicism of this recording is totally at the mercy of the forces of motion, and I like how Wako shows no limit to their ability to shape it. I like how the beauty of these pieces resonates with no less strength during passages of heavy dissonance than those times when a melody is sighed out peacefully. I like the pacing of the varying motions, so that changes present themselves with a certain force, but never to the point of jarring extremes.
Your album personnel: Bárður Reinert Poulsen (double bass), Simon Olderskog Albertsen (drums), Martin Myhre Olsen (saxophones) and Kjetil Andre Mulelid (piano).
