Night time at the Neck. Inspired by Ornette Coleman's "lonely Woman", this short piece is based on the dark hours and in particular the ocean (eastern) side of the isthmus. I feel like the Neck sleeps during the day and comes to life at night.

This is the 1st jazz album of this year which really has attracted my attention)
Long, variegated, sometimes groovy, sometimes soft & even free-improvised compositions, accompanied by absolutely the ideal large horn section (which is not so wild but wonderfully complicated and many-sided) take turns with small romantic miniatures with the leading piano, electric bass makes fusion & funk, 3 wonderful songs in different jazz styles (they are also unusually long) bring some fresh mood. Well-done! Olga Kivius
