All music composed and played by Tess Said So
Rasa Daukus – piano | Will Larsen – percussion
Tess Said So is a piano and percussion duo that provide a sound that falls into the interstices between neo-classic and jazz. Most, though not all, of this is rather down tempo, almost ambient, with a touch here and there of a minimalist feel. It’s only due to the use of a drum kit that it has a jazz vibe at all, at least to my ear (listen to tracks 4, 7, or 10). Quite mellow overall, and very well done, I don’t hesitate to recommend this.
