'Echoes To The Sky'   

-  Label: 'New Jazz and Improvised Music Recordings'
-  Genre: 'Ambient' -  Release Date: '25th June 2021'-  Catalogue No: 'NEWJAiM7'

Our Rating:
This Newcastle trio’s jazzy ambience is built around tenor sax-drums-bass palette with added voice and electronics. The music originates from bandleader Faye MacCalman’s improvised piano which are then turned into synth/sax parts. She plays clarinet on Silhuoette. The rhythm section is provided by John Pope (bass) and Christian Alderson (drums).

The fact that the eight tracks have a loose, meandering quality would be fine if there other dynamics at work to give the tune some extra energy and/or focus.

As it is, the pieces drift along fairly aimlessly culminating in Burn On with some random words about lighting a fire and carrying on.
