Doublebassist Jean-Félix Mailloux’s string trio Cordâme is getting better and better with each album — it is actually making giant leaps. Migration was already very strong, but Lieux imaginés highlights composition skills that are so rich and sophisticated, yet so accessible! Thirteen pieces bearing names of cities Mailloux never visited. Santiago and Dans la tête de M. Sakamoto stand out. Influences from Bar Kohkba and tango music, but a highly personal style.
