Josh Cole - Kind Mind [Cassiar Records]

Scheduled for release via Cassiar Records on October 20th, 2k23 is "Kind Mind", the latest album conceived by Toronto-based double bass player x composer Josh Cole realized with the help of contributing artists like Michael Davidson, Karen Ng, Sandro Perri and Joe Strutt. Over the course of eleven tracks and a total playtime of a little more than 38 minutes the stripped down ensemble starts out from a point of comforting organic late night Jazz melancholia only to drift off into slightly polyrhythmic percussive playfulness with cuts like "The Bar" before adding twisted electronics and additional Field Recordings in the subsequent "A 10 Minute Walk From Here", harking back to tender and classy late night Jazz territories in "Daughters" before rounding things off with the emotional, yet somewhat hopeful meanderings of "Tired" just to provide a rough overview on what this album has to offer sonically, especially for avid fans and followers of Deep Jazz.
