Michael Bisio Quartet: MBefore  —  Humour, Compassion and Warmth
Despite the austere title of the opening track, "AC 2.0", bassist Michael Bisio's latest album delivers humour, compassion and warmth. The style is loosely structured, interactive jazz, and it is played by long-term acquaintances with sensitivity and guile. Five of the compositions are by the leader himself. Developed from scene-setting fragments, they cohere into long-sustained moods.
