Akmee - Neptun (CD Nakama)

 

Debut by a quartet (piano, trumpet, double bass, drums) already renowned individually on the Norwegian jazz circuit, here with four Coltrane-inspired rich and intuitive works from the outer reaches. At times bursting with melodic restraint and at others navigating choppier waters, Neptun remains enchanting all the way through. Its not as demanding a listen as many hewn from this speck o the universe, but still alludes to the analogous possibilities often found. Always a good thing. RJ
