Track: Jorn Swart & Malnoia release the bubbling chamber jazz of ‘First Ocean’



Ahead of their new album Hello Future, the experimental trio Malnoia led by pianist Jorn Swart and including viola and bass clarinet have released a new single, First Ocean. Inspired by science fiction films and literature, each of the compositions on the album is accompanied by a short story.

Mixing up jazz and chamber music, but never diving headlong into either, instead it’s this rather beautiful soundscape you can easily get lost in, as it swirls around folk music, both western and with a touch of the east here and there, as well as this sort of improvised minimalism, with solos from both Piano and Bass Clarinet nodding towards bop as the viola hops between them, always carrying the emotional weight.
