4.0 excellentErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | May 6th 21

A meditative piece of ECM jazz, Solstice uses improvisation to break the atmospheric pace into a fusion-like furor, mostly led by a motherfuckingly C L E A N 12-strings guitar. Seriously, that's some next-level wankery, never overplaying or indulging in longer-than-necessary solis. Talking about clean stuff, the production is amazing, each instrument retaining a very crisp sound that makes every sound worthwile, from the flute to the bass to the drums to the sax. Rarely has jazz been successfully mixing peaceful landscapes with such technical display. 4.1
