4 stars Jazz from Zheul!

Julian Julien's, 2015, "Terre II" displays entirely why do the modern Jazz/Rock/Fusion styling was included in a Progressive Rock page like this one.

From the very beginning to its last seconds this release projects musicianship of a higher level. Its compositions are friendly (prog like friendly, of course) but not by condescending their musical idiom, opposite to that they do so by being daring, deep, focused, experimental and joyful altogether.

The minimum use of "allowed cliches" to sound modern or prog is quiet welcomed. Its richness in instrumentation provides a refreshing start for each composition to detach itself from its predecessor, as they also construct different musical directions, sometimes Big Brass Band like, sometimes Prog/electronic like environments , others Post-Jazz tainted, others Zheul darker and mysterious or some Rock in Opposition like constructed and other subtle and non-stop pleasurable surprises.

A breeze of healthy new air that trascends its "taggins" by being original in its musical language and that my friend, in this world, is pure-gold.

****4.5 PA stars.

Do not deprive yourself from this earthly pleasure!
