Jardin d’exil Ensemble en pièces

Pas de tension ou de brisure mais une musique qui invite à la quiétude, à l’évidence. ImproJazz, France

Repeated spins of the disc reveal a high level of skill at both performance and emotional manipulation. Splendid E-Zine, USA

Led by Philippe Lauzier and Alexandre Grogg, Ensemble en pièces is an inventive jazz quintet with a velvety yet jagged sound. Here, commanding writing and raw improvisation coexist, striking a firm balance between restraint and spontaneity. This sonic mosaic is mostly the result of each musician’s personal contribution: the tight rhythm section of bassist Christophe Papadimitriou and drummer Thom Gossage dialogues with the virtuoso pianist Alexandre Grogg and supports the master blowers Philippe Lauzier (saxes, bass clarinet) and Andy King(trumpet).
