Fiona's Comments

Wonderful introspective tune. I imagine that this song would especially appeal to fans of 70's ECM with its bright guitar and earthy accompaniment. The type of song that goes with sunrise no matter where you call your home.

EDIT: Just read on Jean's site about his brief involvement with ECM. That's too bad. Manfred Eicher's loss, as far as I'm concerned. Lapouge's work is gold.

About the Album

In the time between Hauts Plateaux and his latest effort Temporare, Jean Lapouge, founder of NOETRA, played in a trio setting with Kent Carter (double bass) and Jeff Boudreaux (drums) for nearly a decade. The band went into the studio three times over this period. The musical context allowed Jean to explore new directions in his compositions and guitar playing.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
