4 stars Fascinating debut effort by this US-based Israeli duo.

With guitars and a saxophone as their chosen tool, this dynamic duo has managed to create a brand of sophisticated jazz music that might make forays into the new age market segment as well as the avant one, as eerie as this may sound. There's 5 main compositions on this effort, and all of them are elaborate constructions featuring richly textured arrangements with multiple layers of guitars as a backdrop for saxophone and guitar soloing. Dreamlike in overall expressions but with a myriad of subtle details to find if you give the individual track attention.

5 shorter pieces follows each of the main numbers here, some of them brief concise mood pieces while others comes across as edited parts from improvisational jams. The former works better than the latter, the improvisational numbers are actually the only efforts here that actually fails to inspire beyond the level of being nice enough.

A very good effort overall, and should be checked out by those who enjoy sophisticated dreamy music made with a great deal of finesse.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
