X-Rays is an eerie piece, as the name would suggest. The droning pattern on the Rhodes radiates through the song, with the trumpet pairing with the bass on the melody. The emphasis on vamps and grooves is enhanced by simple, yet refined harmonic development. What follows are two starkly contrasting solo sections, highlighting the dynamic control and variability of the band, and a highly inventive dialogue between Christian Höhn on trumpet and Jan Bernard Zeimetz on drums. The journey X-Rays takes highlights the catchy yet unpredictable qualities that make BLUFF an exciting listen.
