A group

with a well developed sense of how to take past influences and innovations toward new horizons. – Lois Moody, The Ottawa Citizen

A memorable concert at “The Cave”

(Belgium, Nov. ’91) alternating standard forms and free forms — the music joining wild flights of the tenor around the harmonies, sinuousity and diabolical precision, compact rhythms stretching tradition, and at the center the pianist lighting the powder keg with flurries of single notes, unexpected accents and expansive chord clusters. They appeared astonished at the enthusiasm of the public that was still in shock but enraptured. This is their latest album. — Gerard Rouy
