If sound is the interruption of silence, then order is merely the interruption of chaos. Commuting between these two parallels is the Uldis Vitols sextet. By his side are a chamber-esque group of cognitive improvisers. Double Bass, Drums & four horns is how it stands. Scribbles and sketches become organic and flowing pieces. From bulging and revolving swing figures to cascading open harmonies, the band echoes a Monk state of mind in which the moment exudes honesty.
