Records are often made by musicians who don’t work together as a band, with tunes frequently penned at the last minute. But the band that rehearses and performs together gives the music a chance to grow richer in detail, more subtle, more expresive, and more grooving. Such a band is the Laurent Coq Quartet, heard here in their debut recording.Coq’s compositions and arrangements are unusually rich in shifting grooves, odd-time signatures and metric modulations, evocative melodies, striking harmonies, and many creative uses of form. His playing on this recording shares the imagination and resourcefulness of his composing.

An ambitious music (...) the haute-couture way: grand art.

Remarkable first album! (...) a subtle music filled with urban energy and harmonic and rhythmic fineness.
