4 stars The multinational project MACHINE MASS, also known as Machine Mass Trio, is a venture that started out back in 2010 and released their first full length production back in 2011. While this project has the duo of Delville and Bianco as core members they are at their best when working in a trio formation, and for the recording of their second album they invited veteran saxophonist Dave Liebman to contribute. The end result was the album "Inti", released through Moonjune Records at the start of 2014.

High quality musicianship defines this sophomore production from Machine Mass, a vital and energetic production that balances back and forth between fusion and jazz fusion, between the controlled and the untamed, between the planned and composed and improvisations of a more liberal nature. Enticing melodies and harmony based undercurrents coexist with atonal details and twisted instrument sounds, in an often intense and impressive manner. There's a certain emphasis on jazz over rock throughout, but all in all, this is a high quality (mostly) instrumental production that merits a check by those who have an interest in fusion of a fairly expressive nature.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
