O’s Notes: Saxophonist Andy Sheppard chose to work as a quintet for Movements In Colour. They are: John Parricelli (g), Eivind Aarset (g, electronics), Arild Andersen (b, electronics) and Kuljit Bhamra (tabla, percussion). The music is loaded with texture especially on “Bing” and “We Shall Not Go To Market Today” both with rich percussive beats. There is a lot of air between the musicians allowing us to appreciate the sound individually as well as collectively. This is a mellow fusion that resonates well.
