The present CD brings a variety of different music: original compositions between jazz, ditties and microtonal post- romanticism; hits from the 60s, marginal classics of the jazz repertoire (among others with old Dutch lyrics), a traditional song from Belarus, a Cologne march from the 30s, a peace song from the USA and a piece of music in which a programmable lithophone made of more than 200 stone slabs plays the leading role.

All this in an always delicately unpredictable approach by eleven improvisers of the most diverse character, lovingly arranged by the ensemble’s namesake, as well as warmly supported here and there by « La Chorale Transcendentale ».

Please give essential parts of your long unworn wardrobe a new chance and let these musics delight you as much as they did us.
