Experimental ethno-jazz group Jazoo comes from Slovenia, but in recent years it has been more active abroad than at home. Since its formation, the band has stubbornly insisted on maintaining its musical style. However, it has journeyed and developed over time. The cult musical cast, who are unique, original and write all the music they play, shatter the boundaries of music forms.
This can be sensed in their latest album Destinations, where one can feel a perfect blend of modern experimental sounds and European jazz. The influences of Archie Shepp, Omar Sosa and the Esbjörn Svensson Trio are clearly present. The music is eclectic, diverse and highly listenable, and yet also unpredictable and free.
Although the music may lure the listener into a state of hypnosis, it does not foster a feeling of numbness. By using unusual harmonies and complex polyrhythms, the cast take their listeners on a magical voyage of their music. This album captures a moment in time of the creativity of the band, showing that it has managed to move away from its recent work, whilst always staying loyal to its roots.
