Listening Diary

François Couture, Monsieur Délire, February 1, 2012

A strong free improvisation concert recorded in April 2010 in Toronto. Very fine interplay between Rampersaud’s trumpet and Evan Shaw’s saxophone — you could easily believe some of their lines were pre-written. The work of Polish percussionist Tomasz Krakowiak remains mysterious, his very subtle textures blending in with the other sounds. Serious music, though not scholar; demanding music that never sounds forced.
