Fourscore is four young German jazz musicians, and yet they have no use for labels like Young German Jazz or the Next Generation. Fourscore can live with people liking them or not, sharing their view of jazz or not. Because they have a story to tell. Without offending connoisseurs of traditional notions of jazz, the four musicians are putting down new rails. Their album sounds like the beginning of a journey whose point of departure is known precisely. They offer orien-tation by permit familiar and well-loved things. A delicate mesh of then and now, here and there makes it impossi-ble to pigeonhole them clearly, despite all the connections to tradition. The almost symbiotic unisoni of guitar and saxophone, the gentle funk grooves of bassist Heiko Jung and drummer Nevyan Lenkov, the instinctive solos, the renunciation of all musical ballast, and the self-confident understatement in the bands whole look betray an ap-proach to basic values of jazz that could hardly be more relaxed.
