<I>Oceans of Light</I> continues Fretless AZM’s explorations into electronic jazz -- this time with “live” feel that augments the compositions. “Waltzing in Love Again” has a mini-breakdown towards the middle that helps vary the pace, and the next track, “Between the Rhythm,” seems to grow from it. “Yassassin” doesn’t seem to know where it’s going, and the same goes for “Obvious Mutation.” The smoothness of “Santiagio” goes a long way to paper over some of the more flawed tracks, though, and “The Ears Have Eyes,” is a guitar-strumming bliss. Hit-or-miss, yes, but a few more hits than misses.
