Soundcheck Review

Julian Cowley, The Wire, no 204, 1 février 2001

The group takes its name from a Thelonious Monk composition; eight others form the programme for this live recording, made in Montréal in 1999 Jean Derome on alto saxophone, Pierre Tanguay at the drums and Pierre Cartier on electric bass are adventurous musicians, yet their homage is played respectfully straight. There’s a slightly glutinous quality to Cartier’s plugged in bass which sometimes threatens to dampen the quirky spring in Monk’s music. It also contrasts oddly with Derome’s pinched tone.
