Citizen Jazz update

Two Belgian albums this time, one by newcomers, the other by a veteran pianist.

Jazzisfaction - Issues
A very good Belgian debut, full of trumpet-led landscapes, some moody, some sunny. And a nice electro remix to cap it all off.

Diederik Wissels - Song of You
A very arranged album, but one that falls flat because there are only 3 good songs and the solos are transparent at best. There's also a kind of annoying bourgeois air about it all.
