3 stars Estonian nu jazz band "Phlox" is country's best kept secret. "Rebimine + Voltimine" is their third album, and from very first sounds the listener receives huge energetic doze of modernized Canterbury sound brewed with electronics. Complex compositions in National Health tradition,guitars fuzz and flute on the front of the sound, regular rhythm changes, alto/soprano sax attacks and elastic electric piano sound all together build multi-layered dynamic musical construction, really heavy in a moments.

This album is band's heaviest release to date with obvious rock influences.Band themselves tag their music as "powerfusion". Very competent technically and perfectly released, this album is one of the best modern releases seriously rooted in Canterbury Scene's legacy, but at the same time with very modern sound. Recommended for every fan of complex jazz-rock related music,searching for more modern sound.

P.S. Good illustration how different Nordic modern jazz could be.

My rating is 3+.
