Perret, Guillaume & the Electric Epic - Guillaume Perret & the Electric Epic
I saw these guys in France at the 2009 Rock in Opposition festival and they were good and the bassist was the incredible Philippe Bussonnet (of Magma and One Shot fame) who was incredible as always, and he appears here as well!
"A thrilling new band from Paris led by the fabulous composer/perfromer Guillaume Perret who has paid his dues, appearing on dozens of remarkable CDs as a saxophonist. With Electric Epic he finally steps out on his own with a new electric quartet. The result of two years of intense work, the music is a powerful fusion of jazz, rock and metal, with a huge sound, virtuosic solos, brilliant compositions and creative arrangements. Possessing a huge dynamic range and creating a sound way beyond your expectations, this is a very special debut recording by this musical pioneer who is breaking new ground in electric music with this cutting edge quartet. An emotional powerhouse!"
