3 stars Quite strong French jazz fusion. The band are a tight unit, spotlighted by the nimble guitarwork of Marius "Mimi" Lorenzini, who interacts well with bassist Josquin Turenne des Prés and keyswoman Ann Ballester. Ballester contributes some rich synth tones courtesy of her ARP Odyssey and dazzles with her strong piano playing. An almost Canterbury feel pervades at times, but largely the influences seem to be American (i.e.: Mahavishnu/Return To Forever/Weather Report). Some of the pieces are infused with a Latin feel, bringing to mind the early RTF sides with Flora Purim. Ballester sings on many of the tunes, joined by Lorenzini and des Prés on "La Ville en Béton".

Bright, summery fusion, perfect for driving to the beach with the top down on your convertible.
