Martin Rude and Jakob Skott Duo released 2 albums in 2020: The Discipline of Assent and The Dichotomy of Control. For the third installation in their Stoic opus, they join forces with Tamar Osborn on saxophone and alto flute. Similar to their first 2 albums, Rude and Skott improvised a tidal wave of ideas and grooves in the studio of Causa Sui’s Jonas Munk, the perks of which were shipped to the UK for Osborn’s overdubs of echo-drenched sax and wah-flute.

An improvisation rippling across time and space, merging a river of constantly in flux head-on improv, as well as making room for floating harmonies and studio-wizardry. Playful, experimental and explorative, the trio ventures into a free wash of exotica drenched in deep modal jazz-vibes - with splashes of something more futuristic and modern. But contrary to what the title suggests, there are also roaring waves of energy, sizzling funky grooves to complement the ambient undercurrent. It’s a record akin to the library music of the 60’s and 70’s and an ode to the willful river of experimental moderation. Far in.
