In The Corners Of Clouds
Comprised almost entirely of first takes, the less-rehearsed immediacy of Satori's sound is fundamental to the ambiences which Davies seeks, and is encapsulated in opening number "Wabi Sabi", named after a Japanese philosophy which embraces and celebrates the beauty in imperfection. Here, Whitford's rhythmic ostinato and the core melody are broken up, creating an oriental long groove for improvisation before being put back together into a similarly beautiful state.
Other tracks include the impassioned weight of Coltrane-like tune, "Cry", pushes tenor out close and high, dramatized by rumbling bass and drums, only to be contrasted by the joyful South African township sway of "Lazy". To close, "Scattered" (a favourite of the saxophonist) travels through differing key centres, sans time signature, with complete abandon.
