Danish jazz pianist Carsten Dahl and his bandmates reach for higher and more complicated ground in order to bring forward surprises on Caleidoscopia, their fourth album since 2007. It’s improvisational jazz at its best, the music multiplying and splitting up in colourful patterns that rearrange themselves into ever-varying themes and motifs, like the myriad colours and shifting designs seen through a kaleidoscope.

Pianist Carsten Dahl states that he finds his most recent group “the most challenging and innovative musical constellation I ever recorded and played with in my musical life”. The inspiration is palpable on this recording of originals. The most palpable ingredient seems to be Zeuthen, as his alto sax has a vibrato as wide as Sidney Bechet’s, making it extremely emotive as on the sighing “Nora” and yearning “Beautiful”. The rhythm section shows its integrity on the scattering “Furious” and free form “STOP please STOP” which is accentuated by Zeuthen’s brash horn. The team shows its Monk devotion on”Experience This” while sharpening its edges on “Outside From the Inside. The graceful duet between Dahl and Zeuthen on “ I’m Calling” is a perfect mix of the fragile yet warmly wavering sax and Dahl’s romantic yet firm hand. A whole album of this would be a real treat, but what we have all through is nothing shy away from.
