Ornette Under the Repetitive Sky
O.U.R.S. (Ornette Under the Repetitive Skies) make their intentions very clear with their mysterious yet playful name. Their perfect blend of American influences weaved to together with Violinist Clément Janinet's bare hands, is set among firebrand free jazz and the hypnotic rhythms popularised by Steve Reich. The result is a Baroque jazz experience that is as savage as it is seductive. Following two critically acclaimed albums, O.U.R.S. mix African trances, frenetic dances and other refreshed songs of togetherness in this new set.

SIX MIGRANT PIECES
Six Migrant Pieces are six people of varied origins who are extraordinary, world-class musicians in their own right. They were brought together by their migrations in the cosmopolitan city of Paris. The result is an irresistible, nuanced combination that mixes subtle flavours from France, Italy, Belgium and Vietnam. Written with these six musicians in mind, Christophe Monniot's six compositions are fuelled by the mixing of their different cultures, not forgetting the composer's fondness of particular celebrated forbears (Olivier Messiaen, Weather Report, Leonard Bernstein, Wynton Marsalis, Allan Holdsworth) who, with their trailblazing work, left a lasting impression on music history. This is music conceived as a permanent journey, a perpetual migratory flow.
