Berecq, Philippe - Eleven
This is the second album - and definitely a big step forward - by this French electric jazz quartet. The band consists of Philippe Berecq-tenor sax, Romain Nassini-piano, Fender Rhodes, Greg Theveniau-electric bass and Daniel Jeand'heur-drums. Note that Daniel is the (great, great, great) drummer of One Shot. Imagine a John Coltrane-influenced tenor player playing jazz that also skirts in the electric jazz direction (but is definitely still 'jazz') and you've got a pretty good idea of the sound here. Really nice.
We have been trying to get this title in for nearly 9 months and we have gotten exactly 25 copies in. I don't think we can get more and if you want this, don't be number 26 in line, because you won't get a copy.
