This is a moody sort of free-composed jazz that matches the labyrinthian unfolding of the tv series. What that means is that there is space for everybody throughout within the compositional frameworks. Ingrid sounds impressive on tenor, Mat and Max form a two-member string section at times which adds to the sound, and they both solo with smarts. Thomas has an acute set of ears and responds with swing and out feels that help define the music but also show us a drummer who has it!
It's the sort of album you need to listen to a few times to totally grok because it's subtle as well as compelling.
Here is a quartet to hear! I hope they can get together some more because they have a unique chemistry.
Kudos to Max and everybody! This is serious and moving fare.
