Projectionnistes, Les - Vue
The second album by this really superb Montreal band, led by trombonist Claude St.-Jean (who also fronts the great L'Orchestre Des Pas Perdu). The current line up of the band features two members of Miriodor: Bernard Falaise-guitar and Remi Leclerc-drums, as well as Pierre Labbe-tenor sax, Roberto Murray-alto sax, Tommy Babin-electric and acoustic bass + guest Francois Lafontaine on Hammond B3 organ on many tracks. This is really a marvelous album; great tunes and great playing with their own slant on the tuneful-yet-avant-progressive slant of things (I can hear elements of Frank Zappa, film music, Miriodor, jazz, Bobby Previte, jazz/rock, the Microscopic Septet and a whole lot more. Anyway, I was pretty blown away by this and if this description sounds attractive to you, you will be as well! Highly recommended!
