Go to the Outward Bound website  Outward Bound - n/t [Triple Bath - 2009]

Likely to be named after Eric Dolphy's album of the name Outward Bound this Greek duo Outward Bound takes a different, more ambient approach. A bit different from what we're used to from Triple Bath as well, more traditional and less experimental.

Dimitris Neonakis airy guitarsound is not unlike Terje Rypdal's wistful wails. Together with Antonis Tsikandilakis on piano he paints a fairly nordic picture, even though it was recorded in Greece. The ambience coming from the use of reverb is something many listeners may have come to associate with ECM releases and to a lesser extent Rune Grammofon. Eleven pieces in the playing time of almost fourty minutes set a beautiful, romantic mood, rich in atmosphere. Sometimes the melodies drift into more mysterious and less defined sounds, but the lyrical spell never gets broken. Only Perspective Au Fond V makes the water in the calm pond ripple a bit. Otherwise it's very easy to find yourself floating away in this collection of melancholic miniatures (mostly pieces are around three minutes).

It's likely that if you like Rypdal and the likes, Outward Bound will find you well. Like all Triple Bath releases there's a limited amount available (128 copies) but also—as usual—the price is very friendly (€ 5). And it's totally worth it.
