Fresh Sound New Talent have impressed us a lot this year - with a range of releases that have commanded a lot of playing time and concentrated listening. As the year comes towards its close the label isn't letting up and on Friday US alto saxist Andrew Pereira's Lost in Plain Sight is released. Ahead of the release check out the reinvigorating sound of 'Curbside Dash'. There's a lot of both warmth and bustling complexity here and a sound that to these ears shares some qualities perhaps with some of the probing directions of Dave Holland's group approaches in the 1990s. Pereira explains in the notes: ''In 2018, I followed a spontaneous impulse and relocated from Philadelphia to the vibrant chaos of New York City. This album represents the culmination of almost five years spent cultivating beautiful musical connections and navigating the challenges of being a new artist in this unforgiving city. Compositions like 'Moon Burn' and 'Curbside Dash' have journeyed with me across multiple cities, evolving as my skills as a bandleader refined over the years. Meanwhile, fresh tunes like the title track, 'Lost In Plain Sight,' make their debut.'' With Pereira on the album are a fine collection of players in tenorist Neta Raanan, pianist Paul Janoschka, bassist Simón Willson and drummer Jonas Esser.
