October Equus Quartet - Isla Purgatorio

Brand new album from one of the best bands avant-rock-veering-into-electric-jazz from Spain right now, filled with good playing, and good compositional structures for them to hang that playing on.

The band here is Angel Ontalva-guitar, Vasco Trilla-drums, Amanda Pazos Cosse-bass and Alfonso Muñoz-alto sax.

Both Vasco and Alfonso play in another excellent Spanish outfit, Planeta Imaginario, who I certainly hope you know!

For some reason, this one reminds me a lot of Tatvamasi, but with a bit less 'jazz' and a bit more 'avant-progressive', which is pretty odd considering that I am absolutely positive that none of these musicians have heard Tatvamasi, but it's true! A stupendous release - maybe my personal favorite of a number of great releases by them so far. Hugely recommended!
