Amok Amor are a contemporary jazz quartet that are concerned with creating music that is spontaneous, energetic and resilient. The nine original compositions on We Know Not What We Do showcase the group’s biting sense of humour and abstract and tuneful improvisations.
You are gonna love this quartet", writes American journalist Kevin Whitehead. "This quartet was preceded by the Starlight trio of the Berlin players Christian Lillinger, Petter Eldh and Wanja Slavin, but Peter Evans is obviously a full partner in a new band. He brought some prime material, and shows uncanny range. His improvising is airy and abstract, tuneful, and tinged with the blues. His lines and Slavin’s can be disarmingly lovely; the blend is bright and fizzy. The rhythm section is earth to their air: the nutty precision of abstract beat music echoes in Eldh’s eloquent stutters and way of covering highs and lows in a single line, and in Lillinger’s clarity at high speed; his sticks on snare can sound like dried peas poured on a metal sheet, every stroke distinct. Yeah, they’re all great, but this music is about how they come together, showing creative tradition some crazy love: amour run amok.
