Panfilov, Misha Septet: To the Mesosphere and Beyond LP

Availability: In stock

Misha Panfilov's septet showcases his intricate harmonic palette in their second album, To The Mesosphere And Beyond. Filled with optimism, the album features airy, space-age voicings reminiscent of Terry Riley and Raymond Scott, all centered around jazz. The unique addition of a lap steel guitar, inspired by cosmic country music, adds fresh, innovative layers to the music. The album was created during an intense two-week period, with the band rehearsing and performing live in Tallinn and Stockholm, followed by a spontaneous two-day recording session. Despite challenges, the album was completed in just four days. The compositions are structured into four vignettes, transporting listeners beyond temporal and spatial boundaries. The album does well with blending psychedelic elements with jazz. Sasha's passionate saxophone and Ilja Gussarov's flute, paired with Volodja's synthesizer, create an enchanting soundscape due to their desire for exploration and innovation.
