Andy Sheppard's quartet extends the musical explorations begun on the 2015 release 'Surrounded By Sea', an album praised by Télérama for its 'poignant serenity.'
In this new programme of compositions by Sheppard (plus the title track by Brazilian singer-songwriter Reanato Teixeira), the drones and washes of Eivind Aarset's guitar and electronics aided by the generous acoustics of Lugano's Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI help to establish a climate in which improvisation can take place.
There's a highly atmospheric, ambient drift to the music which Sheppard clearly find liberating, as do Michel Benita and Seb Rochford, free to move in and out of conventional rhythm section roles and to make impassioned statements of their own.
