Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

R/E/D/S

Sign of Four

2011-07-07

This is the first collaboration for these Danes (and one Swede). Don’t let that fact fool you. As evidenced by the polished sound of this release, these guys have been around. “Sign of Four” is a collection of mid-tempo, post-bop instrumentals. Ed Epstein’s baritone sax leads the combo, providing the melody on every song. Bjarne Roupe’s guitar provides the harmony. This was the plan when they decided to team up and, backed by a tight rhythm section (Goran Schelin on bass and Dennis Drud on drums), R/E/D/S makes a slick, though not particularly engaging, combo.
