I bought this on the strength of Kairo Konko alone. I'm really enjoying the sound and the mood of this one. This track evokes some emotion. A great first release on Edition records after winning the Kenny Wheeler Jazz prize at The Royal Academy of Music.
Favorite track: Kairo Konko.

Subterranea is the debut album from six piece ensemble Mosaic, led by 2015 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize winner and British vibraphonist Ralph Wyld. A musician of real depth and creativity, Ralph Wyld has been described by Jazzwise Magazine as ‘one to look out for’ and has been praised by the FT for this ‘rhythmic accuracy and panache’.
Produced by fellow vibraphonist Jim Hart, Subterranea not only marks Ralph’s arrival onto the UK scene but also anticipates what will inevitably be the start of a glowing career as a vibraphonist and composer.
