Facienda - Cardboard Music

” The music of Motif is a brilliant mixture of improvised and composed, probably even more developed than their label-mates ‘Atomic’ (a favourite on this blog). Many people talk about the way Ole Morten Vågen mixes classical, jazz and folk together in the compositions, also true for the musicians on here who draw from such diverse areas for their own improvisations. You’re just as likely to be reminded of Keith Jarrett or Dewey Redman, as Misha Mengleberg and Evan Parker.”
