Mike Chamberlain, Hour, January 7, 2010

This is a most-pleasing release by tenor saxophonist Pierre Labbé and his quartet of guitarist Bernard Falaise, bassist Clinton Ryder and drummer Isaiah Ceccarelli. Labbé has a beautiful, warm tone on his horn, and Falaise, who it seems can play anything on a guitar, brings much of the same rock edge to this project as on his work with Les Projectionnistes. Ryder and Ceccarelli are solid and flexible, as the music moves between rock, funk and free jazz. Music to keep you warm.
