Narcissus: No. 2

Read "No. 2" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il quartetto belga/olandese Narcissus, che in questo lavoro specifico ospita in due brani il chitarrista argentino Guillermo Celano, pratica un jazz sofficemente antigrazioso, di temperatura spesso cameristica, comunque generalmente quieta, pacata.
