Gratkowski and Anderskov build a compelling chronicle as they traverse the compositions all of which were written by the former. The interplay between the two is inspired, with the contrast of pulse and mood adding depth to texture. The empathy is in immediate evidence on & as they weave spells of animated interaction with flowing ensemble passages. Gratkowski and Anderskov acknowledge thematic constructs before they turn them inside out. It's yet another rich association that determines the force of improvised music.

Gratkowski/ Anderskov ardent grass. Liebman/ Parker/Bianco relevance. An album with a pervasive groove,adding spoken words to improvised jazz ; it features Paul Plimley showing his great versatility on piano, + west-coast percussionist Dylan van der Schyff. This is a dynamic mixture with catchy melodies, exotic ambiences, kind of lounge music with attitude. Rosco's performance on sax can be passionate and reveal a gritty sound when the music is energetic, or soothing when it turns moody ; it also leaves space for creative involvement from his friends. A promising first album.

Like with nearly every album, there are high and low points, but luckily even the low points are pretty good. At best, like on tracks World Traveller and The Knight, the group sounds explorative and inspired: a tight piano trio with soaring saxophone lines and passionate solos. Unfortunately Episode 29 and a few other small parts of the album came across as a nice effort, but did nothing for me as a listener. However, the highlights of the album more than made up for any failed attempts
