Core, The : And More Vol 1: The Art Of No Return (Moserobie Music)
Label: Moserobie Music    
Released in: Sweden    

This amazing 7 piece band from Norway play sophisticated and intense jazz compositions led by three reed players including Jonas Kullhammar, and Magnus Broo on trumpet. The pieces are four long 13+ minute compositions simply numeibered 1-4, though there's nothing simple about the orchestration and solos on this release, which take twists and turns from demanding quick paced and complex interaction to reflective and beautiful tonal work. Recommended!
