Contra la Indecision
Bobo Stenson Trio - 2018
It's the usual stuff from the Bobo Stenson Trio: beautiful ambiant jazz, where the emphasis is on the harmonious affect and where discord is discouraged. It's probably three songs too long, though it's difficult to say which three should go, as they all are rather the same in tone and tempo. Still, it's stunningly exquisite music to listen to.
Highlights: Elegie, Doubt Thou the Stars, Oktoberhavet
Negatives: Songs have the habit of bleeding into one another, as the ambiance is the same throughoutAndrew Scott Back
