»Stoa«

Who needs that? ECM maybe? The music is fine though it’s exactly what you find these days in »Jazz« sections, but has as much to do with Jazz as Shakira would with Punk-Rock (not even sure about that). Nice piano repetitive lines with bass clarinet, percussions and »going nowhere« themes. It is a very relaxing, smooth but not lounge, easy going middle class product. with very un-questioning blank music. I’m sure they are like what they play and we live in a big world so fine when every one get’s his turn. But, my god, did we really went that far? What upsets me is to see how much Jazz productions today actually should be considered »instrumental« music (I mean Jacques Loussier in return is a monster of swing compared to that). Go get lost with these things (please).
