Album of the Day: Web Web – “Dance of the Demons”


Artist:  Web Web

Album:  Dance of the Demons

Label:  Compost Records

Style:  Spiritual Jazz

Favorite Track: “Land of the Arum Flower”

Music from:  Munich, Germany

What I like about it:  I enjoy how the quintet’s newest transitions to a spiritual jazz expression from a fun hard bop sound on their previous recording.  I like how this music dances right from the first note and never stops.  I like how this tuneful music retains that quality even when it expresses some ferocity.  I like the addition of vocalist Majid Bekkas for this session, and how his voice enhances the sensation of music in motion, melodies destined to dance.

Your album personnel:  Roberto Di Gioia (piano, synthesizers, percussion), Tony Lakatos (tenor & soprano saxophones), Christian von Kaphengst (upright bass), Peter Gall (drums) and Majid Bekkas (vocals, gembri).
