- Here we may cite from two fine reviews of "Tales of Trees":
“The music they make takes place against a steady pulsating rhythm and has influences from several different directions. Progressive rock music from the 70s, fusion of the more relaxed kind, electronic music and jazz, as in Impulsion with the wordless voice of Whales Ofili. Wistrand alternates between soprano and tenor sax in fine playing and solos and David Lindh is a very good guitarist as is Johannes Rytzler on keyboards. But the collective sound is prominent and the most important to the group. It is evocative and ongoing music, beautiful, inviting and atmospheric, which puts one in a pleasant state. But also, music that can work in a club environment and encourage dancing. A musical journey that you need now when darkness falls outside the window and when the world outside can feel so bleak.”
“Unlike in traditional jazz, no space is left for the musicians to make solo outbursts, but everyone submits to a common, "blended" sound. The rocking rhythm lulls the listener into a meditative mood that seems to stop time and generates a kind of eternal music, which may recall Nik Bärtsch's Ronin. Some may find that there is too little happening, others will let themselves be enveloped by the music and embark on a mental journey with an unknown destination.” 4 out of 5 rating.
