Album Review

Reviewed 2006-10-28
Springy guitar jazz, straight, often swinging and even a little funky. Which is a total surprise, because Berthiaume has previously appeared in our library doing avant-garde stuff with the likes of Fred Frith. Guitar/bass/drums trio with a nice sense of freedom, a modern edge, and a bright sound led by that jazz-guitar softness; some nice soloing too.

Personnel: Antoine Berthiaume (guitar), Michel Donato (bass), Pierre Tanguay (drums)

1- Upbeat, jumping, mid/fast
2- Spry little piece, mildly bluesy, cool drum solo
3- Rock-like pulse, catchy and sly.
4- Mildly funky bassline, into breezy mid/fast guitar playing
5- Midtempo swingy, cools it down a notch
6- A pop-tinged relaxation, gentle and midtempo.
7- Breezy, melodic, rolling ... a nice soft break.
8- Blues attitude, midtempo. Loping and casual.
9- Soft, flowing, mid/fast. Kind of folky.
10- Bouncing, almost Calypso feel
11- Fast and softly hopping
