Rune Grammofon’s versatile trumpet dude Arve Henriksen is getting all spiritual on your ass this week with the release of ‘Places of Worship’, a graceful convolution of spiritual music and his mysterious smoky Scandi-jazz, backed tastefully by cleverly used samples and synths bringing a sweeping orchestral feel on a budget. The music is quite dramatic and narrative, often seeming like the score to some gently paced old film noir.

Lately all the big hitting brass honkers bringing out records seem to have been the more confrontational types like Gustafsson and Stetson, so it’s nice to have something here that’s so much more gentle and refined, with shades of Bernard Herrmann and Cal Tjader in the breathy slow-paced tension of ‘Abandoned Cathedral’ and the ghostly exotica of ‘Alhambra’. Closer ‘Shelter From The Storm’ enlists Erik Honore for a beautifully defeated mumble of a vocal line which makes for an emotional end to a thoroughly beautiful, involving album. A uniquely meditative and inventive blend of jazz and spirituality which will touch you right in the soul without even asking.
