Most of their albums contain one or two tracks (between 30 and 60
minutes)...sort of minimalist jazz? What you usually
get is standard bass / drums / piano trio who find a locked groove and play
it for an hour...making very subtle changes
throughout. Someone did call them the Chain Reaction of jazz, and this is a
pretty fitting title, I think. The whole experience
is hypnotic. Their album 'next' actually has 6 tracks. This is a bit
unusual for them. There is not a bad one in the bunch, but
if I had to start somewhere, I'd look for 'next' and 'hanging gardens'...all
are fantastic, though.

I have to say, it's really, really great.
