CD Review: Julian Haugland - Julian Haugland

Julian Haugland (bass); Seamus Blake (tenor sax); Bjorn Vidor Solli (guitar); Jon Wikan (drums).
(Review by Lance).

I've got no background info on this untitled, other than the name of the leader, CD although Google did direct me to his Facebook page so I'm semi 'winging' this one!

Not that it needs much 'winging'. Seamus Blake is a well-established London/New York tenor player and he blows my kind of tenor. Solli on guitar impresses as did his musical ancestors - Kessel, Ellis and Farlow. 

Leader Haugland must surely be in the frame when it comes to the newer bassists and, assuming the seven extended tracks are his compositions, he's no mean hand with a digital pen either. Sympathetic drumming - what more do you want?

An early front-runner in the December CD Stakes. If you can find it, buy it even if you have to hit on Spotify as his F/b page suggests!
