As stylistically varied yet overwhelmingly convincing, Vasil Hadzimanov's sophomore effort for MoonJune Records, "Lines In Sands," puts all of the virtuoso Serbian keyboardist's considerable talents on display. The album mixes ethnic influences with jazz, rock, R&B, funk, psychedelia and more, producing a delightfully zealous musical hybrid -- highlighted by brilliant, soulful improvisations, tight syncopations, a flowing, organic interplay and prevailing understated sensibilities.
Each song is its own unique entity, augmented by performances that are brilliant in substance, efficiency and cohesiveness. Vasil's keyboards work is smooth, lush and impressive, throughout. The musical ideas expressed are fresh and dynamic, delivered with sparkling economy, but never lacking in soul and conviction.
Thoroughly engaging and an essential work for fans of great keyboards, rich textures, adventurous sonic excursions and dense ensemble work, "Lines In Sands" is a highly ambitious undertaking, an album that will leave you thoroughly satisfied.
