Child Of Illusion - Khimaira [Relative Pitch Records]

Another fresh one put out on the circuit via Relative Pitch Records recently is "Khimaira", the new album conceived by the trio known as Child Of Illusion which hit the shelves on May 13th, 2k22. Comprised of Chris Pitsiokos, Susana Saltos Silva and Torbjörn Zetterberg on alto sax, trumpet and double bass respectively Child Of Illusion cater a 42 minutes spanning one track outing which starts out from a point of what could be described as the gelled, smudged and washed out sounds of native tribal rituals blown over from far afar before evolving into a detailed, highly accentuated vision of nocturnal Avantgarde Jazz atop a bustling, organic and sometimes even funky foundation of expertly performed bass movements leading the way from tender minimalism towards more agitated episodes in which sax and trumpet both move from interplay to parallel movements and back, presenting an increasingly playful and frolicking attitude the further "Khimaira" progresses, indicating the artists ever growing confidence and trust in their complementary sonic visions which even pay homage to the idea of certain elements of club music shortly after minute 30+ with steady bass pulses driving the composition forward until it reaches a final climax. Quite a journey, this one is. Yet one that's worthwhile taking.
