Bomata Arômes d’ailleurs (Mam 2013): A French Canadian trio of Jean Felix Mailloux on bass,Guillaume Bourque on clarinet and bass clarinet, and Patrick Graham on drums, with support from pianist Jerome Beaulieu on piano on two pieces and additional percussion on others. This is a soothing outing featuring the clear and mellow lower registers of the clarinets over some nice rhythmic play from the bass and percussion, always taken at a moderate pace and dynamic. Many of the pieces are named for spices and flavorings — cumin, sesame, saffron, jasmine, cardamon — and others have names like At the Park and White Night which are expressive of the delicate flavors that the band produces. Really pretty modern impressionism.
