Magnify that emotion and find the best quality bit of audio kit in your place to hear all the little details on this very special track. Jimjam listening for Lockdownia? Tick that box. You may search all over the place and may never find anything quite as startling in terms of composure, sheer poise and sense of moment as here on 'Free Eddie' drawn from Blessings to be released by the Danish April Records label in April, handily, the 9th to be exact. It seems very simple: a saxophone, the throb of double bass, rustle of a set of drums. Slow, breathy, almost a nursery type quality to the melody. Hear how it develops, a masterclass in subtlety and use of space. Jakob Dinesen on tenor saxophone, Anders 'AC' Christensen on double bass and Laust Sonne on drums are the players. Christensen's reputation already sky high since 'Berlin' played by Rob Luft last year again moves centrestage at the heart of a remarkably distinctive soundworld. 'Free Eddie', a Dinesen tune, is clearly a beautiful piece that seems to hang in the air. A version of 'Freedom Jazz Dance' is also among the album tracks.
