Listen: new track from Ivo Neame's upcoming album

Ivo Neame is officially one of the classiest, killingest pianists out there (Kairos 4tet, Phronesis, etc.) so I was excited to see a new album on the horizon.

Over the course of the track, Ivo connects with every member of the group in some really hip way You can't really see Dave Hamblett on drums - it's really dark in that corner of the room - but he feels his way to bring his trademark magic to Ivo's solo. Tori's solo is also ridiculous - makes me go from pensive smile to writhing gurn in that awesome way only jazz can do. Everything about this is beautiful. Enjoy!

The album, Strata, is due out on June 15th from Whirlwind Recordings.
