This is a minimal post on relatively minimal muted jazz. I’m constantly on the hunt for non-schlocky slow tempo music that contains space and distance between notes/sounds. Maybe it’s my age or maybe I’ve listened to so much music in my life my brain is reaching its “note quotient” and is moving into conservation mode for its remaining capacity.

Regardless, check out Jakob Bro – Returnings on the wonderous ECM Records label. Soothing and patient sketches of intimate jazz.

Sincerely yours,

Dave Wesley – Viana do Costelo, Portugal
