4 stars Although many would associate jazz-rock/fusion to L'orchestre sympathique in Quebec, it's about time we reconsider our position on the matter. Known for their incredibly astonishing stage performances (sometimes 20+ people on stage) this legendary jazz band has finally been released on CD (double CD!!!). The first part is a live performance in montreal where they play new material and stuff from their early singles. What's most amazing though is the diversity of the music: some parts are straight rock n' roll, others symphonic, and the rest extremely virtuostic--what else can you expect of 20 musicians playing in sync. The diversity in the music is really what drew me to this band in the first place, but when you witness the energy and commitment members put into the music, you're awe struck. The second CD is slightly less appealing since its a studio recording and the "performances" are more subdued. Of course the quality of the sound is excellent, much like all of progquebec's releases. Highly recommended!!!
