Jellici Baldes Spacetracker – The Journey
At once wondrously experimental and capable of swinging with a vitality, lyricism and uplift that is positively infectious, Jellici Baldes Spacetracker strikes some audacious, unchartered territory on their new album The Journey. An accomplished group of players steeped in the jazz tradition, the members of this intrepid Swiss quintet also feel equally comfortable operating on the fringes, dealing in ambient washes, electronic soundscapes and sonic realms that go well beyond the notes. Both worlds come together in organic fashion on this stirring new Unit Records release. Blending their respective sounds and aesthetics together with their Spacetracker bandmates on The Journey has yielded some fresh, wholly unexpected and ultimately delightful results. This drum-less quintet traverses an inside-outside aesthetic like no other band.

Jellici Baldes Spacetracker, shows what jazz can be in the 21st century. The quintet finds their very own musical language, which melts together organic electronics and acoustic tone colors to create a new sound. Instead of expectable schemata, there are surprising connections between composition and improvisation, carried by subtle rhythmical structures and an intoxicating groove. Andreas Hölle, MDR
