The rhythm section of Christiansen and bassist Andreas Lang work together with soul and precision, engaging in wondrous rhythmic shadowboxing together. There are continually shifting accents that the two handle with ease while still deftly implying and/or articulating a loping outside swing feeling.
The individual solo work of Mahall and Gropper is challenging and worthwhile, expanding outwards with stay-the-course originality.
Leader Kaspar Tom C. has managed to found a quartet utterly distinguished by the personalities of the players. . . and Kaspar's energetic, rollicking vision of how a band can swing wildly and be filled with outside expressiveness throughout.
This new album is even better than the last. Listen and you will be transported to a Super Kaspar-land, a very good place to be indeed.
