"Lucus", the second recording from Norwegian drummer/composer Thomas Strønen’s "Time Is A Blind Guide", marks a bold step forward from the critically acclaimed debut (described by John Kelman All About Jazz as “a stunning record that stands out as one of Strønen’s most expansive, cinematic and flat-out lyrical albums”). With the group currently trimmed to quintet size, and a new pianist in Wakayama-born Ayumi Tanaka, there is a heightened emphasis on improvisation.
