Christopher Moklebust Don't Overthink It treads along the line of venturing into the avant-garde, but before it does it shows some semblance of restraint and relatability. It is a difficult album to explain for it possesses a kind of monotone nature, similar to Dave McDonnell's The Dragon and the Griffin - though still a different kind of album. This is more... mysterious. Favorite track: run down.

This is the first time the trio has recorded together in a non-live setting: but the session is still strongly rooted in the trio's approach to total improvisation and creating an open, living music.

The best thing we can tell you is to listen carefully.

"This is the sound of three minds working together in a utopian zone way beyond the individual ego - and producing something quite beautiful in the process." ****
Jazzwise Magazine, May 2013

"There's a simple manifesto in its title and some complex improvised music on the album, but enjoying it is a simple matter. [...] the intuitive understanding shared by all three musicians is paramount in creating this very attractive musical world. [...] engaging and evocative music."
