With the release of Statement Of Intent (Edition Records, 2011) everything seemed to be coming together for Kairos 4tet. That abum, the band's second, was critically acclaimed; the band won the 2011 MOBO Award for Best Jazz Act. Then a trapped nerve in bandleader Adam Waldmann's elbow necessitated surgery shortly after the MOBO success and the saxophonist was unable to play for some months.Fortunately, by the sound of his performance here, Waldmann's recovery is complete. Everything We Hold is the sound of a band building on those earlier successes, a beautifully-crafted work that takes the quartet's sound onward and upward.
