Hearts Full of Grace by Al Swainger’s Pointless Beauty: Review
Jazz fusion fueled by the appreciation for the past and a vision for the future, Hearts Full of Grace is one of the most daring releases by Al Swainger’s Pointless Beauty.
Not a lot of ambient or fusion music really have the oomph to catch the audience’s attention and keep them grooving to it. This is where Pointless Beauty stands out. Heart Full of Grace is a collection of funky, elegant, and innovative tunes. The recording quality is so lively and vivid that you can hear the distance and direction each of the instruments is coming from. You can really hear the sophisticated composure of each tune in every measure. Innovative, relaxing, progressive, and technical, each song has its own vibe that adds diversity to the album and keeps it from getting monotonous. The album feels like a story told in 45 minutes of pure instrumental sorcery. The band does not shy away from experimenting with deeply relaxing ambient music to stirring up a storm drawing inspiration from 80s funk.
Hearts Full of Grace by Al Swainger’s Pointless Beauty is now available for streaming on their Bandcamp website.
