Album: Jan Garbarek, Dansere (ECM)
The music on this box-set reissue of three albums from the 1970s evokes what Michael Tucker, in his excellent sleeve essay, calls "floating tenderness".
It's also a vital insight into how Garbarek's adaptations of free and spiritual jazz created their own, distinctively northern European feel.
"Sart", from 1971, with guitarist Terje Rypdal joining Garbarek's quartet, is the rockiest; while "Witchi-Ti-To" from 1973, and "Dansere" from 1975, are close to masterpieces.
