Description

"Henrik Frisk shifts rapidly to and fro - pushing and creating dancing rhythms... let it go - take off with the band... drums tense and restrained... bass taut and getting tighter... less is more - no-one's giving it away... hang on - this is jazz... without the cliches... turned around and fresh... Gary Thomas breaks first with blistering sax flashes... Frisk waits... a few apparently random notes... steadily pushing the sax to its screaming limits... cue Anders Mogensen - the big drum sound - on the attack and on its toes... essential... Gary Thomas' ruthless efficiency - mellowed by Frisk's more tentative gestures... vital interplay between tenors... beautiful - vivid - tender... beneath rolls the ever-moving melodious bass of Mike Formanek... potential... this band has it"... loose quotes from Erik Centerwall Stockholm, Sweden, April 16, 1997
