Nordic Disruption
Jazzheads Records

Everybody has a lot to say in this bustling trans-Atlantic conversation, the second disc by New York/Norwegian/Danish collective NYNDK. As the lead compositional voices, pianist Soren Moller provides striding postbop grooves with warmly lyrical cores, while saxophonist Ole Mathisen methodically takes things into edgier territory. Trombonist Chris Washburne is in the middle, giving the ensemble its forward thrust through endlessly inventive, garrulous solos that bore through the dense, gripping rhythms of bassist Per Mathisen and guest drummer Scott Neumann.
