Track of the day is the dweller on the threshold rippling dream jazz of Lisbeth Quartett's 'Full Circling' drawn from Release out on 17 June. A Charlotte Greve composition the saxophonist here with the long-established grouping of pianist Manuel Schmiedel, bassist Marc Muellbauer and drummer Moritz Baumgärtner. A theme rather than a theme-and-then-full-development (let alone deconstruction or full improvisation) is what's going on here, and all will be surely revealed on the other tracks as to the full panorama beyond this very fetching blueprint. Deutscher artist-of-the-year-winning Greve recorded the tracks that make up Release in an Osnabrück studio last autumn. The drum part is free-sounding while essentially piano, bass and sax repeat the same motif, Muellbauer deftly moving out of step while Schmiedel is a shadower in relief down river of the saxophonic slipstream.
