O’s Notes: Belgian composer and bandleader Ben Sluijs (sax, fl) leads a quartet with Bram de Looze (p), Lennart Heyndels (b) and Dre Pallemaerts (d). The music is free flowing modern jazz that grows on you. The stage is open and the recording is well constructed, allowing close examination of timbre, space and tonal character of the instruments individually and in combination. Highlights are “Song For Yusef”, Cell Mates” and “Air Castles”.
