The album “Leon” surprises with freshness and brilliance of arrangement ideas. Each composition on the record contains some intriguing non-standard element that catches the listener’s attention from the beginning of the song. Musicians are evidently looking for unusual solutions in terms of instrumentation, rhythm and color. But these are not experiments that only satisfy their ambitions. On the contrary. Thanks to the richness of sounds and rhythms, the record is accessible to listeners not accustomed to jazz music.
