Smooth and sultry, the unmistakable sounds of jazz flow freely from this eight-track disc.

Yet another example of that legendary Melbournian musical might, this release boasts intricate string elements accompanied by a pulsing yet distant sounding percussion and of course the stellar swagger of the saxophone.

It’s a wonderfully interlaced piece, with Ben Carr’s saxophone the main ribbon that ties it all together. With the instrument, Carr leaves no terrain untouched as he showcases the full extent of his beloved brass instrument.

Check out third track Lieu of Tracy. With an intriguing sax introduction that pulls focus, the subtle integration of the backing instruments is barely registered. (CD)
