And IV (Inertia)
An album for rhythmical beasts. Grischa Lichtenberger shows on 21 tracks how complex beats are supposed to sound like. An exegesis of contemporary rhythms.

The Magic of Passive Listening

Jazz is more hip than it has been for a long time. The output is large, the return mediocre. But with »Natten« Kopenhagen’s Bremer/McCoy deliver a fantastic work.
