5 stars Maneige is one of my absolute favourite band. They were definitely one of the best bands to emerge from the fertile in Quebec, Canada. Formed in 1972, MANEIGE took a few years to craft their vision of what real jazzy symphonic prog should sound like. "Baroque-fusion" would be something that could fit here. My favourite is the "Les Porches de Notre-Dame" is a 20-minute suite in six parts, all of them featuring virtuoso playing on piano, flutes, saxophone, percussion, guitar and other musical instruments. Is a beautiful piece that keeps the listener attuned with Maneige's gentle side. I really love the way this one sounds. The 3rd track is more in the jazz rock, the clarinet getting its rightful place. This album's sole flaw is the track order. 5 star along with high recommendations!
