Mike Casey’s sax shines like a fiery torch in the darkness

While the law of attraction lacks scientific evidence for its claims and is generally viewed as a pseudoscience, if there is such a thing as the law of attraction, then one of its traits must be the attraction to good music. At least, that would explain how we were drawn in by Mike Casey’s "Law Of Attraction". Casey's sax shines like a fiery torch in the darkness on every track.

Breathtakingly dark and artful

A re-view on a classic track

'Cortez the Killer' is a song by Neil Young from his 1975 album, "Zuma". It was recorded with Young's band Crazy Horse. It has ranked #39 on Guitar World's 100 Greatest Guitar Solos and #329 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The song re-appeared in a live rendition on "Weld" (1991). This article discusses an alternate view on this classic track.

Elegant and Soulful

In a day and age where too much R&B is nothing but about the grind, the Austria-based duo Elis Noa comes with a refreshing release. Art being an expression of thoughts and feelings that we would argue should go further than knee-deep, this album delivers on that. Romantic, atmospheric, authentic, and well-crafted. Polished but not glossy. Just a few keywords to get your heart and mind going.

From the spherical dreamy, to the dark and smouldering

Christina Dahl is one of Denmark's most original and respected saxophone players. Her playing and her compositions are based on fearless courage and deep care for the music. So do  Simon Toldam and Peter Bruun that accompanied her on this journey. Honesty, sincerity, purity, and integrity come to mind when we listen to the album and reflect thereof on our own state of being and that of the world.
