Monsieur Delire

Mural is a trio consisting of Jim Denley (sax and flute), Kim Myhr (acoustic guitar) and Ingar Zach (percussion). Denley and Myhr already have a duo CD out, and Denley and Zach are both part of Myhr’s project with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra (scheduled to perform at FIMAV 2010). Nectars of Emergence is a very fine record of quiet and serene free improvisation. Sonic gestures are measured, delicate, and carefully placed within a vast soundscape that’s a bit cold but still quite welcoming. You can literally get lost amidst the sophisticated extended techniques of all three participants. Most of all, this record displays a clear concern for beauty.
