jasonbranscum At the risk of being super abstract, my favorite thing about this album is that I can't tell if it moves fast or slowly. It's incredibly thick and viscous, but still melodic, playful, and easy to listen to. Favorite track: How the West was Lost.

"Tales from the Winter Solstice" is Dan Karlsberg's 4th release as a leader. It is his first album featuring the instrumentation of piano/saxophone/drums. All music on the album is written by Karlsberg, and is a delicate mix of fully written out music and improvisation coexisting together in an unorthodox way. "Tales" features beautiful melodies juxtaposed with powerful, sometimes dissonant improvisations. It is also an opportunity to hear the great saxophonist JD Allen perform in a context you wont hear elsewhere.

JD Allen - tenor sax
Dan Karlsberg - piano
Tom Buckley - drums
