Reviews of Quiet Inlet on ECM
Here are som reviews of Foods Quiet Inlet (ecm)
A magical hybrid of technology and improvisation, ambience and dance.
Colin Buttimer, BBC Music magazine
Like with every Food release until now, Quiet Inlet is a highly textural and atmospheric record, focussed primarily on Strønen’s exquisite percussive displays and gentle electronics, which serves as a stunning backdrop for Ballamy’s evocative melodic motifs, in turn on tenor and soprano sax.
The Milkman, The Milkfactory
A musical meditation for the post-industrial shaman. *****
By Chris Pearson, Express.co.uk
Quiet Inlet vibrates with irresistibly fascinating detail and visceral excitement.
John Fordham, The Guardian
A disc full of rich textures and colours and with a unique blend of electronic and acoustic sounds. 4/5
Ian Mann, The Jazz Man
Spaciously introspective collaborations that are strong on mood. *****
Mike Hobart, Financial Times
Food is at the forefront of exploring modern jazz. Melodic, rhythmic and improvisation-rendering.
A Michelin star worthy.
PER A. RISNES JR. Dagens Næringsliv
Music that is poetic and soft but with an overwhelmingly rich sound. 5/6
