Fiona's Comments

A haunting tune full of twists and changes. Ellipse was released a couple years ago but never got the attention that this excellent album deserved. So, today we're featuring a track from it. Should appeal to fans of ECM as well as Bill Frisell's non-Americana compositions. Jazz from the Nantes scene.

About the Album

It's a long tune with melodic theme based on three minor chords and with dialogues between cello, clarinet and guitar with the piano. Then there is another theme based on the first play by clarinet and cello.

Personnel: Christophe Pays (guitar); William Hazebrouck (piano); Moullier Line (cello); Olivier Themines (clarinet, bass clarinet).
