See Through 4

Permanent Moving Parts (All-Set! Editions)

Toronto bassist and composer Pete Johnston‘s variable-lineup quartet See Through 4 is back with a new disc of energetic para-jazz compositions it teems with the same eccentric charisma as its two 2020 predecessors. Chris Baber of JazzViews remarked of one of said discs “As a primer for the vivacity of the contemporary Toronto jazz scene, you could do worse than this set.” As far as vivacity goes, one could argue this new set goes a step further with Johnston’s angular writing finding new dynamic peaks with this fresh lineup.
