It’s a kind of cathartic unburying of the subconscious. It absorbs particular mytho-spiritual features of South Indian Classical and Balinese Gamelan music and perhaps bridges sonic territories between post-jazz, experimental, and ambient music. It reflects on travels to places like Chennai, (studying oral traditions of South Indian classical music) Delphi, (exploring the myths of ancient Greece) and the Dordogne valley (delving into palaeolithic cave art of southern France).

The quartet maintains their usual roles, with their usual flexibilities too; Jusell on violin, Prymek on guitars, Sage on keys and percussion, Shiroishi on saxophones. It’s not unusual for members to veer far from their allotted lanes though; Jusell may suddenly erupt on vibraphone, or Sage may curl through a song on warbling clarinet, Shiroishi’s serene voice is more angelic and more prominently featured than ever, and Prymek’s ambient Americana touches lend the album a shimmering and pastoral delicacy.

I really like to read scientific articles about nature, stars, quantum physics. One of them says that NASA estimates that there are about 100 to 400 billion stars in our galaxy. In 2015, scientists estimated that there are three trillion trees on Earth. I found this data really impressive. I enjoy hiking in the forest, being in nature and I always felt some mystical energies around trees. Sometimes I wonder that their sense of time is different than ours. In this manner trees are very similar to stars. What it takes decades for us, it is just a short period of time for them. I wanted to express this in my 6 new compositions and arrangements on this album. I wanted to create a dreamy sound and told my musicians to try to take it slow, to listen to each other, to improvise together and let flow with the music. Let the music take us - and the listener- to unknown places, just like when you find a new route in the forest.

In spite of all the reasons to be angry in this world of ours, Naïssam Jalal has chosen not to seethe, but to soothe. The flute player, composer and singer has relentlessly created music which taps into her instinctive strength. Healing Rituals could be considered as a formal climax – the quintessence of what the musician has been after.

GARDEN is a trio from Norway consisting of Mathias Hagen on saxophones, Henrik Dalen on double bass and Øystein Aarnes Vik on drums. The project was started in 2016 in a larger format and has existed in its current form since the fall of 2022. The band plays original compositions by Hagen, drawing inspiration from the tone language and rhythm of Middle Eastern music, and the form and voice-leading from the baroque period of European classical music. The members of the group all come from different backgrounds within improvisational music and bring their own unique sound and ideas to create a musical plattform for interplay and creative expression. The result is an exciting sound with clear roots in European energy-jazz and folk music.

The music and lyrics touch on everything from life's big questions, small stories, reckoning with the past, and hope for the future. The music is both beautiful and raw, playful and strange. Shakai constantly offers new surprises and unexpected elements. They blend different references, ignore genre definitions, and invite listeners to join them on a journey into their own little strange universe.

Altus, in addition to being a collective, is a relationship between our band and our audience. By engaging in our music the audience creates a shared mythology and community with us. We believe oral traditions, whether musical or mythological, will always vary—performer to performer and performance to performance. Mythos was developed through live performances over the last three years during which storytelling has become an integral part of how we connect with our audience. Mythos takes two important myths relevant to today from Greco Roman and Yoruba cultures and tells them through the lens of Black American music.

Sound-wise, JAF Trio has an approach which brings the band very close to the listener, "loft jazz" style. The sax, bass and drums are right there at the forefront together, creating a remarkably strong presence. The original material of the band has depth and groove alike, at times leaping forward with giant steps, at times calming things down to really stretch time. The music is very melodic and rhythmic.
