First Listen: ILL CONSIDERED – ILL CONSIDERED 3

ILL CONSIDERED

London jazz quartet ILL CONSIDERED are set to release their new album ILL CONSIDERED 3 on April 1st.

It’s their third album and serves as the follow-up to 2017’s Live at the Crypt LP. The record has been teased over the past couple of months with the tracks “Djinn, ‘Nada Brahma’ and ‘Delusion’, but is now available to hear in full on the site.

Meditative and spiritual in essence, there is a wide range of textures in this album:

‘Djinn’ has an ethereal, mystical calm about it, while the bass harmonics and minimal percussion of ‘Nada Brahma’ give an almost Gamelan-like texture. ‘Delusion’ and ‘Meditation’ have a head-nodding, deep and dirty jazz-funk-inspired restless energy punctuated by abstract melodic hooks that stay with you long after you’ve finished listening.

Along with the improvised band tracks, there are three short solo tracks from bass, drums and sax – again created in the spirit of freedom.

The band consist of Leon Brichard (Bass), Idris Rahman (Sax), Emre Ramazanoglu (Drums) and Satin Singh (Percussion).

Stream the album in full below.
