descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Over two years of performances and rehearsals the Carlo Costa Quartet has developed a distinct improvisational language which makes use of slow development, a large variety of textures, a wide dynamic spectrum, and spaciousness. The ensemble sound is emphasized over the individual voices to an extent where often the sources of individual sounds are obscured. "Sediment" is the ensemble's recording debut."-Neither/Nor



"Costa is a musician with a very distinct musical vision, one that creates organic textures that grow almost naturally, quietly and intensely. (...) The music builds on the AMM and Edie Prévost stylistic legacy but then with a somewhat stronger attack and higher density, yet even then the music is more about the joint creation of sonic universes than on melody or rhythm, and the quality of the four musicians really makes it happen. And a lot happens, quite in contrast to the minimalism that you might expect from many of today's avant-garde music. The quartet is nervously active and agitated, yet that does not translate into speed or an avalanche of notes, quite to the contrary, the sounds are measured and well-paced, carefully positioned and placed to create this feeling of restless evolution, not radical, without step-changes, but gradually, naturally, created out of their own existence. The quality of the leader's vision becomes clear when you know what Swell and Moritz sound like or are mostly known for."-Stef Gijssels, freejazzblog.org
