On its debut CD, KNEE DEEP IN THE NORTH SEA, Mercury Prize-nominated combo the Portico Quartet delivers an unusually meditative brand of world music-influenced jazz that matches a minimalist classical music vibe with a pop/jam band-informed compositional sense. Centered on repeated figures played on the hang (a type of steel drum) and soprano saxophonist Jack Wylie’s Wayne Shorter-esque improvisational explorations, Portico Quartet’s music should appeal to fans of Weather Report and the Dave Matthews Band alike.

Label: Fluttery Records | Year Of Release: 2013

"By The Third Sea" was born in special conditions. Some vagaries of life have slowed the progress of the project … More than ever, I put my whole soul in it. These vagaries forced me to consider this album as if it was the last … The pieces were all made 4 years ago. You will ask me: why such a long time to release this record ? Well, I tweaked it again and again … And I especially gradually acquired the real professional equipment, which finally allowed me to shape my ideas. Acquire the equipment was one thing, to exploit all opportunities was another. So I took my time to explore what allowed me to make my new "playthings". With this, I could rework tirelessly each composition to reach my personal vision of the "perfection".
