Appearing here for the first time on record, Dunstan is a trio by Finnish drummer-producer Teppo Mäkynen, bassist Antti Lötjönen and the Blue Note recording American based in Paris, alto saxophonist Logan Richardson. The trio initially formed to perform at We Jazz 2014 and since then, they have performed occasionally and recorded original material by Mäkynen, to be revealed now. The Dunstan sound is deep, spiritual, and groovy, with Richardson’s natural “cry” on the sax laying darkly toned splashes of colour over the seamless groundwork of Mäkynen & Lötjönen. The unit sounds like they have been playing together for a long time and their shared musical thought is clear. This is contemporary spiritual jazz of the highest grade.
