Two 4 Five: Compelling Quintets on Losen Records

Read "Two 4 Five:  Compelling Quintets on Losen Records" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

One quick look at the instrumentation of the two new quintet recordings out on Norwegian label Losen Records reveals several similarities. A significant difference however lies within the chordal duality on the first album and the melodic one on the second. Nevi, a Turkish-Russian collaboration, issues the former duality, demonstrating a more atmospheric approach to modern ...
