The album is a collection of Jazz compositions that are adventurous and emotional. Sometimes moody and lingering, sometimes more unexpected, and sudden changes are waiting for the listener. The music is often high-energy and improvisations end in climaxes to create emotional moments.
The music is exploring a wide variety of styles from mainstream Jazz to more groove-based forms. From more melodic based, European sounding concepts to neo-soul/wonky moods and even a highlight 12-minutes Disco improvisation “Fresh“.
Gábor’s improvisational style often arches over long chord progressions building up to a climax. He is also often using grooves, wamps, or other rhythmic looping devices to move away from the less percussive European Jazz style towards a golden balance between dynamism and melody.
Vince Bartók is providing a solid foundation and masterful solos to the album as well as adding sound effects and textures that further amplify the musical message.
Tamás Hidász is a versatile drummer who is swimming in the polyrhythmic ideas and is providing a tasteful presentation of not only Jazz and Jazz-Rock, but also Disco and Hip Hop-influenced beats, besides drumming in a transparent and natural way to accompany the soloists.
