Airships Are Organisms, the second album from the John Ghost jazz band out of Gent, received so much praise last year that you would swear that Michael Bloomberg had spent half a billion dollars campaigning for it. All the more so because even the Financial Times was lofty in its praise. ‘An album with percussion patterns reminiscent of Steve Reich and solos from a fusion era gone by,’ the business periodical wrote, adding four stars, approximately equal to 67 Apple shares. The Guardian chimed in: ‘A remarkable mix of minimalism, krautrock-inspired post-rock and the electric jazz of Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi Sextet.’ Number of stars? Four! Take it – in short – from the Brits: John Ghost is spookily good!
