    Without doubt my favourite album this year. With a big electronic aspect now this is a bit of a departure from previous albums, however is far more accessible for those who aren't big Jazz fans whilst still retaining a lot of what made them popular to start with.

    A mazy, fluid, ethereal suite of chamber jazz to get properly lost in.
