3 stars Fourth album four years after previous album was released. From very first moments you hear very solid sax and supporting jazz-rock band. Music is very acoustic and has its rare for nowadays "vintage" production - not too much of studio additives are on the album's sound.

Compositions are all mid-tempo, not too long, never too twisted, more melodic, a bit melancholic in moments. Some world music elements are obviously presented, but they aren't main sound's ingredient. Power trio with two sax players sounds right as power trio with two sax players!

During all the album I had that slightly nostalgic feeling - the music there isn't dated, but really sounds as played out of time - you could easily hear such sound in 70-s, 90-s or right now. According to annotation, this album includes songs from some last years band recorded for films or TV editions. Possibly, it's the reason of such effect.

Somewhere at the end of the listening I caught myself I started to like this clear sound, very precise playing, melancholic, even mellow in moments, tunes. Not the album for new sounds and rhythm searchers for sure. To be honest, even too vintage and conservative in moments. But it has it's own (sentimental) beauty, it's a bit pity compositions are not memorable enough.

In all album for more conservative listeners, a bit too safe, but at least not boring. And easy accessible one as well.

My rating is 3+.
