Orchestre National De Jazz - Europa Berlin CD

SKU 15-434444
This is the French National Jazz Orchestra - on this recording a 11 piece band - who have a revolving cast of artistic directors.
This is a frighteningly good, stunningly complex album of electric jazz that is on the level of complexity, especially rhythmically of someone like Albert Marcoeur or Arrigo Barnabe, if either of those two were writing 'jazz'.
Lots of great stuff going on at fairly blinding speed and those who know my enthusiasm for avant-progressive and envelope-pushing that doesn't completely lose the melodic thread (well, at least *I* don't think so), will be enchanted by this. Really!
