You get an unusual sound or two. You get some jazz. You get some ambient soundscapes. You some intriguing and appealing vocal arrangements. You get a sense of curiosity listening to this fizzling amalgamation of jazz fusion, keeping on the dry ground of the genre’s roots whilst tipping their toes into new, unchartered waters.
It’s hard to understand this album. One minute it’s a mangled, abstract jazz collage, and the next minute everything sounds disintegrated. I feel that the music takes a wild, unadulterated trip, with fragments of shocks and sensations colliding against each other. It’s an enticing take on jazz music.
I have to say that this french-speaking close-harmony singing is not just a breath of fresh air – it’s an unlimited supply of oxygen. Anyone who dislikes jazz should cleanse their listening palette now. It’s a rip-roaring ride of early jazz singing, with a modern spin.
This drum legend serves a rich, complex tapestry of rhythmic delights coated in a jazz fusion sauce. Alongside that you also bear witness to some brilliantly average saxophone noodling, although the drumming comes right above all else.
