Review: Guitarist Skov leads his versatile crew on a set of art-leaning jazz that moves and breathes. Delighting in some Zen ambiguity that works its way into the grooves, this is music of discovery that never signals its left turns ahead of time but keeps you paying rapt attention for when they turn up.
