Leo Tardin‘s keyboards sweep generously across skittish drums and ambient noise in this charming snapshot of contemporary jazz. An accomplished jazz pianist, Tardin works his way through distorted time signatures by pairing sinuous, undulating piano and synth lines with crisp drums from Jojo Mayer and Ferenc Nemeth. Tardin‘s freeform collaborations with the drummers is confident, carefree, delicate, and elegant, from the easy meandering melody of "Feudor" to the sonorous piano on "The Space Race (East vs. West)" and the subtle funk of Nuspirit Helsinki‘s remix of "Starlite," hiding unexpected complexities of sound beneath an unassuming, lounge-friendly exterior.
