Soft Power - Brink Of Extinction (RR GEMS - 2020)
Beautiful new release by Soft Power on our new favorite indy label of the moment RR Gems (who released the Muriel Grossman's albums). This nice fresh scandinavian sextet really reminds me the music of Sven Libaek's Mystic Canyon and many of the best Library music from Basil Kirchin, Keith Mansfield to Cortex, fluctuating between ethereal jazz & dreamy pop, really a nice trip in the fjords ! Ultra recommended, this is the 2nd pressing only released at 500 copies, sleeve is whiter than the 1st pressing Comes with larger insert, as usual with thick cardboard sleeve and heavy weight pressing. Don't sleep on this future "masterpiece" of european orchestral jazz !
