On Mattering and Meaning here's keyboardist Dan Nicholls' serene jazztronica 'Papa' using what's like a tack piano, loops, ambient sounds and field recordings in the mix. The video, making great use of saturated colours, is by Dutch filmmaker and anthropologist Louise Boer. The monastic sense of repose and inner peace is striking. More on Nicholls, mentioned in a 2016 live review appearing inside the band Can of Worms at The Oxford, Kentish Town but go back even earlier to travel to 2014 with his band Strobes playing the Vortex, Dalston.
The absorbing avant-garde and yes totally dazzling 'Breathe' is also streaming. The approach here sits well along with dear readers if say you possess an affinity for Elliot Galvin's innovations then you will be on your way through the door of perception in.
Mattering and Meaning link, issuing label is the Finnish company We Jazz, and the album is a 13 August release.
