Organic improv, poetic melancholy, composed frames investigating compositions of Sven Meinild and Paul Wacrenier. Jazz comes together with reminiscences of the folklore of France, Greenland, Japan and Denmark as well as inspirations from the vast Mongolian grasslands and the Pygmees vocal tradition. Upwind Circles is the debut album of the adventurous international quintet Living Things.
