A double duo of two keyboards (Giovanni Di Domenico and Pak Yan Lau) and two percussionists (Joao Lobo and Matthieu Calleja). While I know I’m not the onl one out there with an abiding and unreasonable love of the sound of a distorted Fender Rhodes, I’m probably in smaller company with my long-term affection from that early ECM release from Keith Jarrett and Jack DeJohnette, “Ruta & Daitya” (the former’s last venture into electronics?). Going doubles down on the instrumentation while summoning up a similar post-Milesian spirit, with related rhythms and keyboard scurrying. It lacks the over-the-top funkiness of the earlier work (sometimes the beats are a bit leaden, as in “Fara”). An unfair standard to hold this quartet to in any case and on its own the music flows pretty well. Maybe, in a more contemporary vein, think of it as a variant on Radian or Trapist–enjoyable, lightly beat-driven music with imaginative, keyboard-oriented washes and distortion atop. A fun trip. (Brian Olewnick)
