4 stars Birth of a musical type: Zheul music

" R´ah Sah´ltaahk ", piece of 20 minutes written, composed and arranged by Christian Vander constitutes the birth of a true musical style in full measure. Very different from symphonic rock, school of Canterbury or Italian prog, Zheul music has been founded first and foremost on rhythm. The melody and harmony are not away but they always remain second behind this tremendous heartbeat.

Zheul don't express feelings but energy. The incredible energy of life.This music is made for the body more than for mind.

The two other pieces, not composed by Vander, are very good but less original. They return in a jazz mood, music the zheul found his source (the druming of elvin jones, the universal spirituality of Coltrane).

A disc of transition. Very accessible (more than MDK for a debut) and very recommended to every people who want to discover a new ground in music.

H.NOT | 4/5 |
