ajatuslapsi Great, solid album, but not as magical as Adagio for the Blue (which is amazing). Noir ambient jazz moods. Favorite track: White Condor.

Bartosz The expression of this album is simply amazing! Just close your eyes while listening and imagine you're somewhere in the woods, up on a mountain on a glade. It's quiet because there is no one there beside you. You are sitting in a warm log cabin, the fire crackles in the chimney and if you go outside you can hear the snow is falling. That's how this music sounds for me – it's warm and cozy, somethimes a little husky and a little melancholic. Favorite track: Avant Noir.

Martin Johnson This album has a strong narrative throughout, viscerally painted in thick oil strokes. Engaging from start to finish and it's nicely recorded, too.

"There is something deliciously dark and mysterious about the film noir-esque sounds presented on 'Legacy of the Witty' by Trigg & Gusset on Preserved Sound ... something very David Lynch. Slow, lazy percussion ... haunting piano ... and some seriously sensual yet rather melancholic saxophone ... all come together to make this late night soundtrack. Add the odd synth and percussive sample ... and wow, what an album. There is even a double bass on a few tracks which is just icing on the cake ... With Bart Knol on keys, beats, synths, and samples ... and Erik van Geer on tenor sax and bass clarinet ... this is some lovely music. Throw in Dominique Bentvelsen on double bass on four of the tracks and you have something beautiful indeed. The melodies articulated by the saxophone are simply breathtaking ... they are the eloquent expression of someone who knows how to play ... and play well. Passionate & expressive yet unhurried ... I found these melodies an utter joy to consume..."
