Dans Dans have been around a while and sound very chilled here without being at all flakey. As a Marc Ribot fan the Belgians feed my yearning for that sound a bit as they do for the desert blues. 'Shell Star' is when the album really grooves and yet the journey guitarist Bert Dockx, adept at sheer escapology when he breaks loose, bass guitarist Fred ‘Lyenn’ Jacques and drummer Steven Cassiers develop towards this point of the record makes a lot of sense. Musicianship is high, the dinky tunes neatly cultivated and nurtured. On Unday. Dans Dans photo: Alex Schuurbiers. SG Out on 23 April

Recorded at the French festival Jazz sous les Pommiers, think Terri Lyne Carrington in reference to how Paceo's drumming style comes over, that loose, loping touch drawing us in. Christophe Panzani's sax solo on 'Tzigane' is very much in the Wayne Shorter domain as a quick scene setting aural snapshot. This track goes on a little bit too long it's fair to say however the other tracks don't at all overstay their welcome. Singer Leila Martial is an elfin presence to an extent throughout. Celtic-sounding 'Birth and Rebirth' is an album highlight. 'Toundra' too has its moments, twisting and turning after a quiet start. Keyboardist Tony Paeleman on final track 'A tempestade' lifts us up to new heights. The melodies however sweet on Circles Live never cloy. A remarkable spirit fundamentally burns vigorously throughout kept fresh through the persuasiveness of the quartet's sense of flow. On Jusqu’à la nuit. Anne Paceo, top
