"Just Awake" is a new direction of neo jazz: dark, roaring, ambiguous and aggressive. It breaks the sonic ground while remaining lyrical and fluid all the time, even in the chaotic movements. Pure avant-garde.

The listener has no chance to be bored even for a fraction of a second.
All twelve unstretched compositions, as mentioned above, are created by free improvisation, during which the protagonists show a congenial creative feeling for building structure and texture.
