Album Review

Originally from Baku, Azerbaijan, but now living in the Netherlands, pianist and composer Amina Figarova studied classical piano and began writing music as a child. She switched to jazz as a young adult, and has blossomed as both a player and a writer in the years since. This is her third release as leader of an accomplished septet that includes top players from the Netherlands and Belgium (among them her husband, the excellent jazz flutist Bart Platteau).

The playing is top-notch throughout, with particular kudos going to Platteau, Figarova and alto saxophonist Tom Beek. Very, very nice.
