Tord Gustavsen Quartet – The Well

June 10, 2012

What I like about a good old-fashioned magazine is when it turns you on to something new.  The April edition of Stereophile turned me on to this release (see the review at this link).

The review caught my interest, but so did the label ECM, which was my favorite label in the late 70s and 80s.  I had not listened to an unknown (to me) ECM artist in a good 10 years.

Like most ECM releases, this is mellow, folky, atmospheric jazz.  My favorite song is Circling, which could be a Norah Jones song (see video below).  Another great song is the titular piece which also includes some great sax work.
