“Granelli is a veteran, first-rate jazz drummer with a spiritual bent. Broken Circle is his second album at the helm of UFB, a quartet the 56-year-old founded with three young German jazz-rockers. UFB’s special virtue is its integration of two contrasting layers: the heavy, blues-based fire of electric guitarists Kai Bruckner and Christian Kogel, and the airy rhythms of Granelli and bassist Andreas Walter. The guitarists full-throttle attack never gets oppressive; Granelli and Walter’s springy foundation keeps things supple and fluid.”
