Not terribly so, mind. In fact, Kjofol likely owes more influence to the world of classical music than jazz. His plinking piano makes an appearance in all of the original tracks here, winding its way through the blur of minimal house percussion that reminds of the ultra-clean atmosphere of someone like Bruno Pronsato. The Berlin-based producer isn't a bad point of comparison: Kjofol's melodies are always expressive, but prone to dissonance much like Pronsato's early work for Orac.
What makes Kjofol different, however, is his relentlessly sunny disposition. "Brimbazz" and "Little Garden" are suffused with a light that keeps them buoyant, while "Pensive Sorrow" seems like one of the most easy-going odes to contemplative unhappiness you'll hear all year. Backed by an Echonomist remix of the latter, the only thing wrong with this bright and airy EP is its name. Jazzy or not, these are gardens made for exploring.
