Album Review

Sakata, Akira / Johan Berthling / Paal Nilssen-Love – “Arashi” – [Trost]

humana   4/27/2015   12-inch, Jazz


This is free jazz, intense and great in its way. Track 2 is particularly interesting with its vocals backed by drums. The double bass highlights the drama. In Track 3 Nilssen-Love’s percussion shines. Yes, it’s all stormy. Track 4 begins with the lovely sound of clarinet. The double bass comes in for a nice conversation, and then the percussion enters. The song meanders through its story line, less frenetically than the other tracks, until Sakata’s vocals come on the scene and speed things up a bit. Very interesting.
