"I have gathered a few examples of Leo's editions down through the years. Being a 20th century music fan as well as jazz enthusiast i have no problem enjoying the sometimes totally new and unexpected turns in this rather experimental 'jazz'. His music may require rearranging your thinking when listening.
In Kabell there are 2 cds which are solo and on the other 2 he is with other musicians though the approach to the pieces is more or less the same: sparse, distant notes and quick compressed passages against a wide and deep sound stage or background...be bop or traditional jazz elements are only suggested. There is no sense of time keeping though it seems much of this is written down (as the booklet shows). A true musician working in his own musical world. I would recommend this to the listener looking for something challenging, expecting rewards after a few repeated spins."
