Crunching grooves, massive riffs, exploring the faultline where jazz can pivot into prog and back again, the keys trio Rymden return with their latest studio album and Bugge Wesseltoft, Magnus Öström and Dan Berglund do not disappoint on 'The Mountain' streaming now ahead of the full release of Valleys and Mountains on Friday. The tune written by drummer Öström is strong both on melody and rhythm with a discernible bittersweet quality to it. Rymden play Ronnie Scott's on Saturday.
