Weighing in at a little over a minute you won't hear anything like it this year… try a little tenderness and hit play to discern where distance is overcome and the comfort of friends being honest is all on 'The More It Changes'. And you know it's like a Sesame Street moment in its poignancy new earlier in the year from considerable musicological boffin the former Bad Plus pianist Ethan Iverson in his prime now for many years, an intellectual and communicator in the best possible senses of both these significant words keeping things simple.

Goosebumps time - dry your eyes mate. Read more about the fine album from which 'The More It Changes' is drawn, Every Note is True
