Léandre's bass playing often seems bound for the stratosphere - she indulges in glassy harmonics and mezzo-soprano melodies way up on the fretboard. Particularly striking are her imitations of whale song, which share an uncanny resemblance to the real thing. Nauseef stresses textural playing over articulating a regular pulse. The result is a series of colorful interjections and phrasal punctuations. Is the music on Evident unconventional? Yes - unconventionally lovely.
