Heaven and Earth (XL) JAZZ

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - CLASSIC TALK -

A key at­trac­tion at this year’s Beat­yard fes­ti­val, the US sax­o­phon­ist favours a max­i­mal­ist ap­proach and has in­tro­duced jazz to a gen­er­a­tion who had ig­nored the genre. This new dou­ble al­bum is a con­cept re­volv­ing around the ide­al­ism of heaven and the re­al­ity of earth, and while there’s plenty to ap­peal about both, the earth side is vi­tal and raw.
