L'instant de Oz Quartet




Wow, another stunning cover painting, right?  Check out the post-apocalyptic housing projects with abandoned school playground where non-whites are routinely and randomly arrested for crossing the street, minding their own business... oops that sounds like 2014...

The addition of violin, so common in french fusion, adds a nice classical component to the jazz, which is superbly played and always interesting.  It sounds similar to the Art Zoyd guitarist's Alain Eckert's album, perhaps crossed with some Claude Barthélémy compositional style.  It's amazing how in this period the French musicians imported so much advanced dissonant, modern classical elements into their jazz.

A good record for those like me who enjoy this style.  Compositions by Didier Sarrazit (the guitarist).
