The prolific Fretless AZM delivers <I>Distant Earth</I>, another album of electronic frippery and jazziness. The jazz is much looser on this album than on previous ones: “Manipulation (Is Suspected)” exemplifies this spirit, and “Jam Sandwich” is pretty much self-explanatory. “Brass Lines & Basses” goes from another jazz-jam to a house track halfway through -- a surprising and refreshing change. “Travis” has a melody that’s a bit more elegant, but no less funky. The final track, “Distant Earth,” throws in some ethnic drumming for added flavor. All together, it’s another mixed bag, but one that warrants investigation.
