In a glass house, on stilts overlooking the Lake District, England. The sun is beaming right through the vast, open living space. Surrounded by blinding sunlight and plants around me, I put my headphones on and listen to Kinkajous’ Being Waves. I feel at peace. I fixate my eyes on eagles and other smaller birds take flight, always in motion. The fluidity of their flight, combined with the always changing cloud shapes in the background, make this beautiful morning one to look forward to. With each drum beat, synth leads, string or horn melody, I feel the earth around me changing, whether it be clouds shifting, animals flying, running, galloping through the wilderness. The view from the glass house looks towards a large, crisp lake, with roads meandering between the thick and green trees. The earthly and raw nature of this jazz album make me feel like I’m floating among the clouds, and the power behind these compositions are genuinely breathtaking. The changing soundscapes mirror the changing landscape outside, as the sun dances with the clouds, a choreography that seems so random yet so intricately organised. Let the sound, the earth around me take control, as I spectate from my glass house, up in the hills of the Lake District, watching over the birds and clouds move and change shape. I then close my eyes, and transport myself into a world of intense rhythm, groove and atmosphere.
