More Info:

I.P.A. is Atle Nymo tenor saxophone, Magnus Broo trumpet, Mattias Ståhl vibraphone, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten bass, Håkon Mjåset Johansen drums. After a dozen years as one of Europe's most acclaimed jazz ensembles, I.P.A. is still discovering mesmerizing new sonic territory. Originally born out of a deep dive into the music of pioneering trumpeter/composer Don Cherry, the group has firmly established it's own sound and identity, and Bashing Mushrooms reveals a striking new side of the quintet. A sumptuous aural feast marked by extended, circuitous melodies and spacious, finely etched textures, it is the group's fifth album. While the title might suggest psychedelic journeys, Bashing Mushrooms is a work of riveting clarity, with all of the thoughtful interaction and knife-edge balance between improvisation and composition that has long distinguished the group."... the album is essentially an explosive, spellbinding, and well-rounded musical event, where many of the hard-edged works encompass eloquent plot developments and tuneful theme-building maneuvers." - All About Jazz
