Awesome unconventional jazz album... the kind I love finding up on Bandcamp... the title track, "The Assembly," and the last track, "Le Relais" were particularly powerful pieces... totally recommended !
On this beautiful outing esteemed violist Frantz Loriot premiers his large group: The Frantz Loriot Systematic Distortion Orchestra. The music drifts and scurries between different chapters, intensities and episodes while maintaining a unique and unified sound throughout. The orchestra features some of the most and adventures and courageous musicians from the Brooklyn downtown scene, the result is both challenging and invigorating.
