3 stars This appears to be the first four of 14 tracks recorded at fandango in May last year. Djamra are a four piece comprising drums, bass, trumpet and sax. The word of the day is jazz, and these guys can certainly play. This is uncompromising material, with all four willing to take the lead when required, although it is usually left to the brass musicians playing as one to define the mood. The real problem with this album is the quality of the recording. Although it isn't as poor as a bootleg it does leave a lot to be desired so some of the undoubted force of this music is lost. But if you enjoy jazz that is definitely at the limits then this is for you ? the musicianship and interaction is incredible.
