This exciting quintet brings together the creative force of Canadian reedman Quinsin Nachoff and a French group built around the equally creative drummer Bruno Tocanne and three horn players. Listening to these 10 originals, you are reminded that when strongly motivated musicians take jazz to where it meets contemporary music, with the accent on improv, you can get uplift. It surely beats nostalgia. In ballads, up-tempo pieces and tone poems, the tunes are bright and attractive, developed with attention to the overall effect. Kudos to trumpeters Frédéric Roudet and Rémi Gaudillat and reedman Lionel Martin for this terrific outing – perfect for a Canada-France appearance at next summer’s jazz festival.

Four and a half out of five stars
