Towards the Center
Towards the Center marks a debut release by guitarist Alex Levine and his quartet, a thoughtful well-balanced release with plenty of intricate musical ideas, and ensemble chemistry. Levine has a dark rich tone and uses space wisely. The tunes are about the expansion of musical consciousness, and Towards the Center fits the bill. Enough meat and potatoes to keep the listener engaged, but also enough introspective depth to challenge the ears to dig deeper. A strong recommend!
