There's a wonderful brass flavour to the arrangements and a pacey shift say on 'Ardu' from the initial fairly pedestrian tempo as it moves up a gear and back that hooks you in. That Theon Cross-like brassiness is a potent factor on a highly eclectic album that has Jonny Enser at the helm. Olivia Bhattacharjee's summery vocals are part of the blend while 'BlindSpot' has a percussive freedom to it. Enser's clarion trumpet on 'Presence' is a striking highlight of an album that punches about its weight and throws to its credit enough curveballs in its jazz journey to keep you guessing. The rap that emerges out of a chamber jazz swirl on 'Come As You Are' featuring Nadeem Din-Gabisi is a great way to round off an album that engages from the off even if it casts its net stylistically too widely at times.
