The same restraint and precision running beneath Alberto Boccardi’s most recent album, Petra, sneaks into the architecture of this mix. While these pieces’ rich and evolving textures are front and center, this music covers a wide emotional swath. Boccardi keeps his finger on the pulse, though, guiding listeners through each pace with an unwavering focus. It turns the hour of this mix into a lasting, memorable breath.
Petra is out now via Room 40 and comes highly recommended.
