There is a sense of pervasive mystery and restlessness on this latest highly tasteful album from bassist Michel Benita. An opaque version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's 'Inutil Paisagem' is just one aspect of this album which was recorded last year in France. A quartet affair with Benita joined by Matthieu Michel (flugelhorn), Jozef Dumoulin (fender Rhodes & FX) and Philippe Garcia (drums & sampler), Michel proves a significant presence on the mournful freely improvised title track. A cerebral, professorial, record that takes its time to reveal itself, there are some lovely instrumental passages throughout enabled often by Garcia's drumming that allows for an open environment. Benita is a worthy successor to ECM bass legend Eberhard Weber and shares in abundance the tastefulness and burning creative drive of the great German.

Out on ECM.
