Ten Of The Best – A Review of 2019
Water links and flows through this album. It connects us, it cleanses, baptises and sustains us. The sleeve speaks of our empathy for others making us larger, becoming the ocean rather than a moved passenger in a small boat. Bob Ciano’s artwork, a world away from his technicolour full on gatefolds for 70s Blue Note, CTI and Kudu records, shows a figure in twined in a scarf, pulled towards the water, bound or wrapped before baptism. Either way we are pulled in, the image is as enigmatic and beguiling as the album itself.
